New York Jets Fear Darrelle Revis ACL Tear and Other AFC East News
There was injury updates up and down the AFC East lineups on Sunday. The Bills lost running back C.J. Spiller, the Dolphins lost running back Reggie Bush and the Patriots lost wide receiver Julian Edelman.
But none of these injuries were considered to be as serious in severity or in detriment to the team as the injury to cornerback Darrelle Revis.
The All-Pro cornerback sustained what appeared to be a non-contact injury to his left knee against the Dolphins, and didn't return to action following the injury, which occurred in the second quarter.
Now, the Jets are fearful of the worst, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports:

If the Jets have to play any extended amount of time without Revis, it could change the outlook drastically for the team as a whole. We'll have to see how the rest of the secondary responds, but if they respond anything like they did against the Steelers—which is to say, not at all—the Jets could be in serious trouble.
