Revis was kicked in the head accidentally by linebacker Bart Scott toward the end of a Week 1 victory against the Buffalo Bills. The injury, which initially seemed minor, resulted in Revis missing the Week 2 game in Pittsburgh.
Now that Revis has been cleared for contact, Jets fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Barring unforeseen events, Revis should be able to play on Sunday in Miami. Said head coach Rex Ryan (also via Fox News):
I could say that I expect him to play, but again, I am going to leave that to the doctors and the trainers. He's cleared for contact.
What does having Revis mean for the Jets in Week 3?
Ryan likes to be cautious with his words to the media. However, that quote is strong evidence that Revis will play on Sunday.
After the upcoming game against the Miami Dolphins, the Jets play the San Francisco 49ers and the Houston Texans. Arguably the two toughest teams in the NFL, it is important that the Jets head into that stretch 2-1 and not 1-2.
