Football News

The New York Jets, after an impressive start to the season, are in the midst of a run that has seen them win just one of their last five games.

And, with their playoff hopes hanging by a thread, it appears the AFC East franchise are going to have to head into their crunch week 12 game against the Miami Dolphins without one of their key players.


That's after Jets head coach Todd Bowles today cast further doubt over the availability of the team's star cornerback, Darrelle Revis.

Speaking to the media ahead of the team's divisional matchup, Bowles, via the New York Post, said:

“We’re ready to play without him (Revis), but if he comes back it will be a bonus...We’ll see later in the week. We’re preparing to play without him.”

Little progress

Revis suffered a concussion against the Texans in week 11 and was actually sent home from the team's Wednesday practice by the medical staff. This latest update all but rules him out of featuring on Sunday.

Unless the veteran Pro Bowler is able to rapidly progress through the NFL's concussion protocol over the next couple of days, the Jets will have to be without him.

Although he has shown some signs of regression this season, Revis is still a key player for the Jets. His absence at such a crucial time could have a huge impact on the franchise's prospects.

The Jets could also be without starting center Nick Mangold this weekend after he was held out of practice on Wednesday.
