As we all know by now, Darrelle Revis was cleared for full contact yesterday. He said yesterday that he is playing on Sunday, and although the coaching staff is going to lean on the trainers before announcing that officially, barring a setback it seems that Darrelle will return on Sunday.
Darrelle certainly sounds ready to go. Yesterday, he was talking Dolphins receivers. Here is what he had to say about them:
Another challenge for this team is playing in the Miami heat. It’s been tough for them when they play at the end of the season, it certainly will be warm on Sunday:
It’s a really big challenge for us. We’ve been very proactive in coming out here and practicing very up-tempo, a lot of no huddle stuff in practice too, to handle this on Sunday. It’s going to be hot. I remember last year in the game, our last game, it was very hot. I remember needing to come out some times because it was so hot and I wasn’t feeling well. We understand that and I think guys have been doing extra conditioning and certain things so it won’t be (an issue).
Darrelle certainly sounds like a guy ready to play, doesn’t he? Obviously this is a big break for the Jets if he can go, and bad news for the Dolphins.
