Bye, Bye Hamstring: Revis Feels "100%"

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis said on Monday he is back and healthy.

Florham Park, NJ – The Jets are hoping that this past week off meant they could wave "bye" to cornerback Darrelle Revis' hamstring injury.

The player, who suffered an injury to his hamstring during practice prior to Week 2, injured the muscle further in the subsequent game against New England. Revis, who conceded a long touchdown pass to Randy Moss on the play that forced him out of the game, also missed the next two games at Miami and then Buffalo. The All-Pro cornerback returned two weeks ago to face Minnesota and also played through the pain at Denver.

The man nicknamed "Revis Island" for the way he maroons receivers said he is healthy and ready to get back to the form that has made him the most feared cornerback in the league.

"I'm ready to go. I'll be there Sunday. We did everything we could this week," Revis said. "The [past] week helped out for me to stay up here and get all the treatment that I needed to get, so I'm ready to go."

Unlike most of his teammates who jetted away during the bye week, Revis stayed behind at the Jets Atlantic Health Training Center. He received treatment such as acupuncture and did stretching and strengthening exercises to get fully fit. It is the best he felt this season.

"All day, I was over here, just trying to knock it out," Revis said. "This was a good week of rest for me to do that - the best time, where I can come out and where I can get one-hundred percent and get ready for the second half of the season."
