Despite other reports to the contrary earlier this week, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has not yet been cleared for contact as of Thursday afternoon, and therefore, is not a certainty to play in New York's Week 2 game at Pittsburgh.

Revis suffered a "mild" concussion in the Jets' 48-28 win over Buffalo in Week 1. He has been cleared for physical activity, meaning, he can run and lift weights, but he is not yet cleared for live hitting - something that could deem him ill-prepared for the Week 2 game.

Revis will miss contact in practice again Thursday, as he did Wednesday. Jets head coach Rex Ryan said "If (Revis) is not 100 percent, Darrelle won't play, it's as simple as that."

Nickel back Kyle Wilson would step into Revis's spot in the event of his absence.

The Jets secondary feasted on Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in their blowout win, getting interceptions from Revis, Wilson and CB Antonio Cromartie. Cromartie's was returned 40 yards for a Jets touchdown.

Ellis Lankster, a four-year vet, is listed as the Jets' fourth cornerback - the likely fill-in for Wilson at nickel.

The Steelers would certainly benefit from Revis's absence. Few teams in the game - if any - have a stronger receiving corps, and it's one that could look to be featured without the man who many consider to be the best cornerback in the NFL.
