Revis Has Torn ACL, Will Likely Miss Season [VIDEO]

Darrelle Revis has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee that will require surgery, likely meaning he’ll miss the rest of the season.

A somber coach Rex Ryan won’t definitely rule Revis out for the season, saying Monday he just found out about the results of the MRI exam. He calls it a “horrible” thing.

“This is a guy that’s as competitive as it gets,” Ryan said, adding that the surgery will be scheduled in the next several weeks. “I don’t think there’s any doubt he’s going to come back strong from it. Before we do anything, I want to talk to Darrelle.”

Ryan pointed out that 7 Jets have successfully had ACL surgery including Antonio Cromartie.

2010 first round draft pick Kyle Wilson will step into the starting lineup according to Ryan, who expects Isaiah Trufant & Ellis Lankster to step up their game.

“This is a team game. Our guys, I think we’ll respond. We’ll certainly have to accept the challenge. We’re going to come out and compete. We might do it a little differently, but we’ll certainly give it our best shot, without question.

Revis was injured in the third quarter of the Jets’ 23-20 overtime victory at Miami, falling awkwardly and grabbing at his knee even before he hit the grass. It was a non-contact injury, and he wound up covering his face with gloved hands in obvious pain.


It was Revis’ first game back after missing a week with a concussion suffered in the season opener against Buffalo.
