Revis Returns To Practice, Still Questionable

November 29th, 2013

darrelle revis 0607The Bucs’ $1-million-per-game cornerback, Darrelle Revis, was back practicing today after injuring his groin in Detroit. That’s a great sign. It’s rare in NFL cirlces for a player to play on Sunday if he doesn’t practice Friday.

Officially, Revis was “limited” in practice, per the Bucs.

An MRI on Revis earlier this week helped clear him to start playing again, and Revis was upbeat to Joe on Wednesday about his condition.

Fingers crossed for Sunday in Carolina. The guy’s impact can’t be discounted, especially with Panthers receiver Steve Smith banged up.

While speaking to the Tampa Bay pen and mic club in the locker room after practice, Revis said his strained groin feels “way better” than it did earlier in the week but he admitted he is still not 100 percent.

Revis said it will be a “game-time decision” whether he will be able to go or not. Revis seemed a bit more upbeat about his condition than Bucs commander Greg Schiano who said Revis is “questionable” for Sunday.

    Per PFT – Steve Smith is banged up, Williams might not play, Stewert and Tolbert are both banged up. I’d prefer to be able to stand toe to toe with healthy divisional foes and win but at this stage of the game I’ll take wins where we can get them and if that’s against hobbled players then so be it.

    Anybody thinking about the draft over development is dumb.

    We need to become a solid PROGRAM.

    We need stability and evolution.

    We do not need to lose games to get a good pick.

    We need to get better every week, and use our picks wisely again next year.

    But now?

    We want WINS!!

    We’re banged up too.

    Revis may have become that expensive, luxury sports car that ends up “in the shop” a little too often. It will be interesting to see his health status the rest of his career.

    I doubt it, this would be the first game misses this season and it’s completely unrelated to his recovering knee.

    He has been a great investment, he is a game changer.

    Imagine when he’s completely back and 100% confident in his knee.
    Because a big part of the process of recovering from this type of injury is mental.

    He will be even scarier once he has gotten over that hurdle as well.
