Revis doesn’t want to play Sunday

Typically, you don’t usually see an athlete publicly stating that he doesn’t want to play. An NFL player, especially, would be on the field no matter what the circumstances.

Apparently, Darrelle Revis doesn’t buy into that philosophy.

Here’s an interesting quote from New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis on his injured left hamstring:

“Going into a bye, we’re 4-1 right now — you can rest me,” Revis said. “Take this thing into the bye and come back fresh for the (Packers) game.”

Ok…. I guess Darrelle is either not concerned about Sunday’s matchup in Denver, or his hamstring is far worse than originally thought.

Coach Rex Ryan has stated that going forward, all injury decisions, same as all football decisions, will be on his shoulders.

Revis said Ryan met with him yesterday morning to talk about taking the reins, in what Revis called “a great conversation.”

Ryan said he’ll also make sure the staff closely monitors injured players during the game. Revis said he felt soreness in the muscle starting in the first quarter against the Vikings, but Ryan said the player “never said a word” to him.

Whatever the end result for this week, Revis’ injury looks like it will be lingering problem all season. Good thing Revis “worked out” during his holdout, or his injury could be a lot worse.
