Revis talks rehab and state of the Jets on NFL Network
Cornerback Darrelle Revis appeared on NFL Network's Thursday Night Kickoff pregame show for an interview with TV reporter Andrea Kremer.
Revis, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury in the Jets Week 3 win over the Dolphins in Miami, discussed everything from his ongoing rehab, to the team's 3-6 record -- and of course, Tim Tebow.

On where he is at in his rehab:
“Right now I’m doing great. I got my range of motion back and everything is looking on the up and up right now. I just have to continue to keep on rehabbing and go to the next steps. Thanksgiving is coming up so I’ll still be here [in New Jersey]. After that I’ll head out to Arizona.”
On where he is with the amount of swelling and degree of flexion:
“My range of motion is back to normal. I have all of the flexion and range of motion back. Right now it’s just to continue to focus on my knee. I do have a little bit of swelling; it’s going down rapidly but just continue to focus on that. Then head out to Arizona with my personal trainer to finish there with the rehabbing and lifting on my leg.”
On why the Jets are 3-6:
“We’re in a tough spot right now where we’re at. I see these guys when I’m over there rehabbing every now and then, and I just try to encourage them. I just really do as much as I can being one of the leaders on the team. Right now I can’t really pinpoint what’s really wrong because I’m on the outside viewing in. The only thing I can do right now is really support these guys as much as I can and just hope they win every week.”
On the news surrounding the Jets this week:
“This week has been a tough week for the team. A team like this with what’s been going on this week, a team will fold. The biggest thing for us is to overcome everything that’s going on right now through the media, through the losing streak. If we can get a win this week, that would be awesome. It would turn things around, that would give the team momentum for the upcoming weeks to win those games as well.”
On what the Jets should do with quarterback Tim Tebow:
“Those [decisions] are not in my hands. That’s Mike Tannenbaum’s job. He’s the GM and he has to make those tough decisions. I’m happy I don’t.”
Revis is working on a documentary about his recovery as part of the NFL Network's Player Health & Safety series. Part one of the film aired earlier tonight. In case you missed it, click here.
