There is a decent chance that the Jets will be without their best defensive player Sunday against the Steelers. Cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered what is being termed a mild concussion in Week 1. Revis will have to pass baseline testing and be cleared by a team and independant doctor in order to play. Head coach Rex Ryan wouldn't make any determinations Monday.
"He seems to be feeling good, but whatever those test scores are, apparently that's low," Ryan said of Revis. "I'll lean on the doctors and trainers. We'll see how he progresses during the week."
Understand that there is truly nothing such as a "mild" concussion. Each person responds differently to each concussion. It's damage to the brain, and there's really no timetable that can be placed on Revis' return. He may be OK by tomorrow; it may take him weeks to feel well. If Revis can't play Sunday, the fantasy values of Mike Wallace and Ben Roethlisberger would get a boost.
