Sources are surfacing that Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered a mild concussion in the Jets' 48-28 win over Buffalo in Week 1, and may not be available for his team's game against Pittsburgh in Week 2.
Jets coach Rex Ryan said he would "lean on the doctors and the trainers" when asked whether Revis would play Sunday.
Revis is among the best defensive players in the game, and any suggestion he may not play, or even just not be 100 percent, has to be good news for a Steelers team that gained 284 yards against Denver in Week 1. The dual big-play threats of Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown of the Steelers look to be a formidable task for any secondary, and that certainly wouldn't get any easier without Revis.
The Steelers struggled to run the ball against Denver, averaging just 2.9 yards a carry on 26 rushes. Revis's status for this game would likely influence the Steelers' game plan a bit.
