Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis on Wednesday received AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.
Arriving this offseason as a free agent along with Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine, “Revis Island” is now back in the Big Apple under a new defensive-minded coach in Todd Bowles.
Darrelle Revis did not practice on Wednesday with a groin injury, however, it is believed to be just soreness, according to a person familiar with the situation.
In the past, Bowles has been relatively up front about injuries. Revis was spotted in the locker room and appeared to be fine.
In Monday night’s 20-7 win over the Colts, Revis had an interception and two fumble recoveries. It was great. It’s Monday Night Football. Bowles was not asked which players missed practice.
Decker will be evaluated throughout the week, but his availability is also in question. But Bowles never gave an indication that several players had been spectators in practice.
Owusu had an arthroscopic procedure on a knee, and Bowles said he would be sidelined “a week or two”. Right guard Willie Colon (knee), receivers Eric Decker (knee) and Chris Owusu (knee), linebackers Lorenzo Mauldin (concussion) and Trevor Reilly (finger) and cornerback Darrin Walls (hamstring) did not practice as well.
The former Cowboy, who signed a five-year, $42-million deal with the Eagles in March, has rushed for just 11 yards in his first two games with his new team.
The Jets have forced an eye-popping 10 turnovers to start the season, with Revis recording three fumble recoveries and an interception.
Quarterback Geno Smith fully practiced for the first time since having his jaw broken by a punch from then-teammate Ikemefuna Enemkpali on August 11.
