New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is officially out for the remainder of the 2012 season due to a torn ACL, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Revis sustained the injury in the third quarter of Sunday's 23-20 overtime victory against the Miami Dolphins. He was untouched on the play, fell to the turf clutching his knee and required a cart to be removed from the field.

The loss is an enormous blow to the Jets' defense.

Sunday's game was Revis' first since suffering a concussion in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills when teammate Bart Scott accidentally kicked him in the head while pursuing Bills running back C.J. Spiller.
