Jets fans received the news they didn’t want to hear this morning when coach Rex Ryan announced that All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis had indeed torn his ACL in New York’s overtime win against the Miami Dolphins yesterday.
An MRI earlier today confirmed the tear in Revis’ ACL. Ryan furthermore said that surgery will hopefully occur in two to three weeks. This all but concludes Revis’ season, an unfortunate event in the Jets’ 2012 campaign.
This will be a tremendous wakeup call for backup defensive back Kyle Wilson, who must step up and attempt to fill the void left by Revis, arguably the league’s best cornerback.
Will the Jets regain composure and fight on following the loss of their best player? Or will this loss set the tone for the rest of the season?
