Darrelle Revis out for the season with torn ACL

The New York Jets were expecting bad news on the injury suffered by cornerback Darrelle Revis in the team’s victory over the Miami Dolphins.

This morning, their fears were confirmed: Revis will miss the rest of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

“Darrelle's such a great player and a great teammate,” Coach Rex Ryan told reporters (via the Jets’ Twitter feed). “We're going to lose that presence. We have to overcome that.”

Ryan indicated that he believes the tear is complete. In any event, Revis will undergo surgery. Revis was trying to bring down running back Daniel Thomas, who had caught a reverse screen pass from Ryan Tannehill, when he suffered the injury. Although center Mike Pouncey used a cut block on Revis, it appeared that he was injured before being blocked.

The game was Revis’s first since missing a week with what the team termed a mild concussion.
