After sitting out two weeks with the injury, Revis played this past Monday night in the 29-20 win over Minnesota. Ryan said that the team will hold a light practice on Saturday and then the decision will be forthcoming.
"This trip's a long trip. If he's not feeling well, we're not going to do it," Ryan said during his Friday afternoon press conference.
As if the hamstring injury wasn't enough, Revis was pulled over on Thursday morning by police near the team's practice facility for what Ryan called "reckless driving." This follows on the heels of recent incidents surrounding the team including Braylon Edwards' September arrest for DWI, the reported harassment of a female reporter from Mexico several weeks ago during practice and recent allegations that wide receiver Santonio Holmes took money from an agent while playing his college football at Ohio State.
Ryan said that Revis was speeding because he was running late on Thursday morning. Revis ended up missing the beginning part of a team meeting, something Ryan said he noticed.
"Obviously, you have to slow down, he's running late," Ryan said. "It's not an excuse."
The Jets head coach and player talked about the incident on Thursday afternoon.
"We talked about a couple things," Ryan said, not elaborating further on the discussion.
