Health update on Revis
By Tim Kavanagh
Much of the discussion regarding New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis this offseason has revolved around whether the club would be trading their star CB, and for what price in return. One of the factors complicating the situation is the fact that Revis sustained a season-ending ACL injury early on in the 2012 campaign, and his recovery from the malady will great impact any sort of trade offers the Jets receive.
Conor Orr of the Star-Ledger checked in with Will Sullivan, a man who has served as Revis' trainer throughout his time with the Jets, and he believes that the CB could be ready for some conditioning work within the next two months.
"For me, I think I'm thumbs up in April, I'm going to get the green light [from Revis' training staff] in April," Sullivan opined. "The great thing is, there's been no setbacks, it's been a great surgery, he's doing the right things -- he hasn't done too much, he hasn't done too little. He's doing just enough to make sure he's cooperating with the doctor and physical therapist. Once I get the green light in April, it's time to go hit it hard on the field, so I have to make sure we hit it in a progressive manner. ... With him I have to start off with level one. It's all about how he graduates from program to program."
Revis' recovery will obviously impact that Jets' ability to market him to other clubs ahead of the draft in late April. So any development on this front will be greatly scrutinized.
