Darrelle Revis Probably Out Against Buffalo Bills; Calvin Pace Probably In

Rex Ryan produced some mixed injury news today.

Jets coach Rex Ryan is not optimistic that cornerback Darrelle Revis will play in this Sunday’s road game against the Bills but is upbeat that outside linebacker Calvin Pace can return.

 

I have been saying this for a while, but Revis should sit until he's healthy. He showed against the New England that he's not doing the Jets any favors by playing hurt. The team can't build its scheme around him locking down the other team's best receiver, and he risks making his injury worse, which would cost him more time.

A Pace return would be most welcomed. I'm looking forward to seeing what he and Jason Taylor can do playing across from each other. It will also allow Rex to rotate the two with Bryan Thomas so all three will stay fresh with more limited snaps.
