New York Jets announced that the Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis (31 in July) underwent wrist surgery Today and will wear a hard cast for the next two-to-three months.
The team says Revis will be “limited” in the team’s offseason program and is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
ESPN reported that Revis might have injured the wrist in Week 3’s loss to the Eagles, playing through an issue the team believed to be a sprain. The soreness lingered, however, prompting an offseason re-examination.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Revis had a torn ligament in the wrist.
Revis played 14 games last season (missing two with a concussion), finishing with five interceptions and leading the Jets with nine takeaways.
2015 season ushered Revis’ return to the Jets after being traded to the Buccaneers and Patriots.
Revis suffered one other serious injury in his career (not counting his concussion), when he tore his ACL, costing him most of the 2012 season and a trade to the Tampa bay Buccaneers.
