Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis sustained a concussion in the team's Week 1 win over the Bills. That has left his status for Sunday's game against the Steelers in jeopardy.

According to Mark Hale of the New York Post, Revis is on the path to recovery.

He has been cleared to return to physical activity, but not to practice. Whether he'll be ready to go remains to be seen.

"I hope [he can play] but you have to take care of your player, number one. And that's the way it should be," Ryan said, according to the Post. "Unless he's ready to go, you don't put him out there, period."

It's good to know that Ryan is being protective of his players, but if he is unable to go, that would thrust third-year cornerback Kyle Wilson into the spotlight as a starter. And although that may not instill the Jets faithful with much faith, Wilson says he's ready for the challenge.

"I definitely feel more comfortable [starting] than I did last year and the year before," Wilson said, per the Post.
