Jets CB Darrelle Revis ruled out for Week 2
Jets head coach Rex Ryan said earlier this week that if cornerback Darrelle Revis is on the team flight to Pittsburgh, he'll play Sunday against the Steelers. Well, Revis is not going to be on that plane as Ryan ruled him out during his Friday press conference. Revis suffered a concussion in Week 1 and while he has been cleared for non-contact practice, he has yet to be fully cleared by medical personnel. Kyle Wilson will start in place of Revis.
Good news for the Steelers offense. You're most likely starting Antonio Brown and Mike Wallace if you've got them, but I think this is really good for Brown since Revis probably would have been all over him. Antonio Cromartie will likely set up across from the bigger Wallace. Raise expectations for Brown, but again, both guys are at least WR2 plays.
