Jets' Revis plans to keep playing 'until wheels fall off'
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis insists he's unfazed by critics who suggest he might have lost a step, saying he plans to keep playing ''until the wheels fall off, hopefully.''
Revis had offseason surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist, but says during minicamp Tuesday that it is healing well and he expects to be ready to participate at the start of training camp late next month. He has been unable to practice so far this offseason because of the wrist, which was injured early last season.
Revis remains one of the top players at his position. He turns 31 on July 14, and some fans and media suggested he might no longer be an elite cornerback. He says those are opinions and won't change his approach or how he views himself.
