Darrelle Revis Has Mild Concussion; Status In Doubt For Jets-Steelers

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Jets fans thought they could breathe a sigh of relief.

Multiple reports stated All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis, who left with a head injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 48-28 win over Buffalo, didn’t suffer a concussion.

But the Jets announced on Monday that Revis had a “mild” concussion, putting his status in doubt for their Week 2 matchup against the Steelers.

“I’ll always lean on our trainers and our doctors,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “With anything, any head injury — any injury at all, but especially a head injury of any kind — you’re going to err on the side of caution.”

Revis was injured on a tackle of Bills running back C.J. Spiller, when linebacker Bart Scott inadvertently kicked him in the head. The 27-year-old had a key early-game interception in what was a huge afternoon for the Jets’ secondary.

Losing Revis would be a blow to a team that has struggled to find success in Pittsburgh.

“He seems to be feeling good,” said Ryan. “We’ll see how he progresses during the week.”
