Florham Park, NJ - The news of Darrelle Revis needing surgery on his wrist after last season came as a surprise, but thinking back it makes sense as an explanation for why Todd Bowles continued to use Revis in off-coverage so much while simply conceding short routes to opposing receivers. There's still a bit of mystery surrounding when the injury happened and now there's some mystery as to when he'll be back out practicing with his teammates.
"It's day-to-day or week-to-week. I can't sit there and give you one against the other," Bowles said. "I don't know, whenever the doctor's say it's right, whenever he feels better. He's been running, he's been in meetings, he's been doing all the drills, so we'll see how it goes going forward."
Revis essentially repeated his coach's quote, he's not sure on a timeframe for when he can return and he's not particularly concerned. He's just going to keep listening to the training staff, rehabbing his wrist and doing everything else he can to get into football shape, but he admits there's still some soreness in his wrist as of now.
"There's always going to be soreness coming back from surgery where they're trying to repair something, but there's definitely no set backs," Revis said. "I'm icing it and doing my excerise so every day, but at the same time, there's been no swelling or anything like that. So that's a good sign."
Bowles said he doesn't think there's any cause for concern about whether or not Revis will be ready to start the season and not only is Revis not concerned he could miss any games, he has no doubt that he will be the same player he's always been.
"I've been the same guy since day one," Revis said. "There's never been any setbacks. As a team, we feel very confident and very good where we're at with this rehab."
