It doesn’t sound like Jets CB Darrelle Revis will play next Sunday vs. the Bills, but in some good news, it appears that LB Calvin Pace might see the field.
Not playing Revis makes sense. The Bills QB situation is pretty ghastly – even with Buffalo releasing Trent Edwards today – and I wouldn’t expect Ryan Fitzpatrick to challenge New York’s secondary enough for the Jets to feel Revis’ absence. Plus, with a hamstring injury, the team will be extra cautious with Revis so this doesn’t become a long-term problem.
“He’s moving around better and he feels better,” Ryan told reporters, including the New York Post. “But you almost have to be 100 percent to play corner or you’re going to be facing this the whole season.”
Pace, meanwhile, has missed all three games after breaking his foot in the preseason. But Ryan said Pace could return to practice Wednesday.
In Pace’s place, Jason Taylor has received much more playing time at outside linebacker than he originally might have expected.
