New York Jets Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis was injured today late in the third quarter of their win over the Miami Dolphins, and the result of an MRI tomorrow could confirm the worst news possible.
The injury occurred on a non-contact play, with Revis’ knee buckling when he planted and went to move forward to attempt a tackle. Non-contact knee injuries are, of course, often the most devastating. What’s worse is that as far as I know, the word “loose” isn’t a commonly-used adjective to describe a healthy knee.
We’ll be following this closely tomorrow morning, and we’ll take a closer look at the Jets’ remaining schedule to see who exactly is set to benefit from Revis’ absence if he is indeed lost for the year.
For now, know the obvious, and know it well. Anyone who owns any offensive player on that schedule should rejoice immediately, while the Jets’ season could be torched already after just three games
