In the third quarter of today's game against the Dolphins, the Jets' Darrelle Revis collapsed to the ground after suffering a non-contact injury to his left knee. Writhing in pain, the team doctors looked over Revis until he was able to walk to the sideline on his own. While that may have been an encouraging sight, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports has some discouraging news for Gang Green fans everywhere.
Jets fearing a possible ACL injury for Darrelle Revis. Doesn't look good but will not know extent until more test done back in New York.— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) September 23, 2012
In a nutshell, the Jets are fearing that Revis tore his ACL. If so, the team's star cornerback is likely to be out for the remainder of the season. Without him in the lineup, do the Jets still stand as viable Super Bowl contenders?
