Jets delay Revis decision

The New York Jets will not risk quarterback Darrelle Revis if he is not fully fit for Sunday’s NFL match against Pittsburgh.

Revis was concussed last week as the Jets started their 2012-13 season with an impressive 48-28 win over the Buffalo Bills.

And although he can run and work in the gym, he is not allowed to be involved in contact activities as his recovery continues.

Revis – who is a four-time Pro Bowl selection – is likely to know if he will play on Saturday, with a cautious Jets coach Rex Ryan insisting no risks would be taken.

“If he’s not 100 percent, then Darrelle won’t play,” Ryan told reporters on Thursday.

“It’s as simple as that. If a guy had a concussion, I don’t think you would put him on a plane to make a game-time decision. I would think by Saturday we’ll certainly have an answer.”

Revis, who suffered the concussion when he was accidently booted in the head by fellow Jets player Bart Scott, said he was happy to leave the decision to the club’s medical and coaching staff, despite his desire to play.

“It’s not my call,” Revis said.

“Whatever they say goes. I would try to be out there with a broken leg. They know that. It’s a competitive spirit in me that just wants to go out there and play.”
