FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) – New York Jets All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee that will require surgery, likely meaning he’ll miss the rest of the season.
A somber coach Rex Ryan wouldn’t definitively rule Revis out for the season Monday, saying he just found out about the results of the MRI exam. But Revis will have to wait two or three weeks before having surgery, Ryan said, and the recovery from an ACL tear is normally between six and nine months.
“It’s just disappointing,” Ryan said. “This guy wants to win. As great a player as he is individually, he’s a great teammate and just wants to win. That’s why he was so excited about this year.”
The Texans are scheduled to play the Jets on Monday Night Football on Oct. 8 in New York.
