As we reported earlier today, the Jets learned this morning that Darrelle Revis did indeed suffer a mild concussion during the game against the Bills. Bart Scott accidentally kicked Darrelle in the head, and we all saw him come out, talking to doctors on the side. Initial reports were that he did not suffer a concussion, but now they have learned otherwise. Here is what coach Ryan had to say about his status today at his press conference:
I’m not sure about all those things. I know there’s the NFL protocol. I’ll always lean on our trainers and our doctors. With anything, any head injury, and any injury at all, but especially a head injury of any kind, you’re going to err on the side of caution, so we’ll see how he progresses during the week.
He isn’t required to be out this week, it is all dependent upon the tests, and how Darrelle performs on those tests, this week leading up to the game. Rex will be leaning on the trainers:
I don’t have that information(what the tests are). I just watch the tests. I understand it’s a mild concussion. He seems to be feeling good. Whatever those scores are, apparently that’s low, but again, I’ll lean on the doctors and trainers, and we’ll see how he progresses during the week.
To be able to play on Sunday, he has to be cleared by the Jets team doctor, as well as the independent neurologist. Guys that saw Revis today said he seemed to be OK. Hopefully that will translate into him playing on Sunday, as we need him to go up against Mike Wallace.
