The previously unknown injury might have contributed to a late season approach the Jets took.

#Jets CB Darrelle Revis suffered a torn ligament at some point this season, which explains why it was sore. Decided to get it operated on.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 17, 2016
The surgery will limit Revis' participation in the offseason program. This would probably be a bigger deal for a less established player. A raw guy like Devin Smith really needs those practice reps for his development. An injury that costs him part of the offseason program might be a big deal. For Revis, I think it might be an opportunity for a young guy to get them. Revis knows how to play corner.
