Jets' Revis listed as probable, will play

BY foxsports • September 17, 2010

Cornerback Darrelle Revis is listed as probable and is expected to play in the New York Jets' game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, despite tightness in his left hamstring.

''I thought he looked pretty good,'' coach Rex Ryan said Friday. ''We never did a whole lot with him, but when he was out there, he looked pretty good.''

Revis was limited for the second straight day of practice after participating in about half the session Thursday.

Revis wasn't available to the media Friday. He said Thursday he expected to play, and appeared to be unhindered during the half-hour of practice the media watched Friday.

''I never saw him limping or anything else,'' Ryan said. ''When he was tight, his hamstring was tight, you're not going to push him through it.''

Revis missed all of training camp while holding out for 36 days in a contract dispute. He has said he came into the season in great shape, but acknowledged that he's a bit behind in his football conditioning.

''It can't help,'' Ryan said, adding that Revis played well in the opener against Baltimore.

''We probably played him too many snaps,'' the coach said. ''I think that was probably the biggest contributor to him tightening up. Like I said, I expect him to go and play great.''

The Jets will need him to since he's expected to cover Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss. Revis held Moss to nine catches for just 58 yards and a touchdown in two games last season.

Meanwhile, safety Brodney Pool was listed as questionable with a sprained right ankle. Signed as a free agent in the offseason, Pool also missed the opener against Baltimore with the injury.

''I feel good about him,'' an optimistic Ryan said. ''Brodney did a lot of work today, more work today than he had done (Thursday) and the previous days. So, I feel pretty good that he'll play.''
