The New York Jets have just received devastating news.

According to the official team Twitter feed, Darrelle Revis has suffered an ACL tear and must undergo surgery.

The superstar cornerback sustained the ACL tear in Sunday’s overtime win against the Miami Dolphins in a scary, non-contact injury during the third quarter.

When Coach Rex Ryan announced the news earlier, he noted that he still needed to speak with Revis before placing him on injured reserve, but he is 100 percent out for the year according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Mehta noted that Revis wouldn't be undergoing surgery right away, but will instead wait at least two weeks to have the operation performed. 

This is a tragedy for the Jets, as they have lost their best player and will have to alter their entire defensive scheme to make up for the loss of Revis’ unique coverage skills.

The New York Jets aren't optimistic about Darrelle Revis' knee injury. In fact, three dreadful letters have been mentioned.

The news comes from CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora:


The Jets may have secured the win on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, but if Revis has any type of major knee injury, no one in New York will be celebrating.

As if the New York Jets didn't have enough problems, superstar cornerback Darrelle Revis went down with a knee injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game against Miami, according to Evan Silva of Pro Football Talk:

Silva also wrote that Revis went down with "a non-contact" injury, which actually makes it seem worse:

And just to make the panic meter in New York reach new heights, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News is reporting that Revis is done for the day:

Typically, when a player gets hit low and starts limping, you can see what the problem might be and go from there. If they don't get touched and start having knee problems with a limp, your mind can think any number of things. 

Revis was playing in his first game since suffering a mild concussion in the season opener against Buffalo

We will keep you updated on Revis' condition and status as soon as more information becomes available.
