FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Darrelle Revis (concussion) still has to pass two more tests before he can be cleared to play Sunday against the Titans, but the Jets have seen encouraging signs of progress.
The star cornerback was on the practice field Wednesday for the first time since suffering a concussion Nov. 22 in Houston. Revis, who missed the past two games, did light running off to the side but did not practice.
“If he doesn’t have any setbacks,” coach Todd Bowles said, “he’ll progress to the next day [in the concussion protocol]. He’ll do more. He’ll run around, and if he can do non-contact drills, we’ll see what the progression is from there. If he’s feeling good, he may be able to practice a little bit. If he’s not, he won’t.”
Marshall the man
Brandon Marshall is the first Jets receiver since 1990 (Al Toon) to be named AFC Offensive Player of the Week. He had 12 catches for 131 yards and a touchdown in the overtime win against the Giants. But there’s one accolade Marshall isn’t sure how to handle: being the first player to post at least 1,000 receiving yards in a season for four teams — the Broncos, Dolphins, Bears and Jets.
“A lot went into playing for four teams, so I didn’t know how to take it,” said Marshall, who leads the Jets with 1,062 receiving yards. “I don’t know how to process it. I don’t see the big deal, honestly. It’s 16 games. You should be able to reach 1,000 yards if you’re a good receiver.”
The team hopes Chaminade alumnus Mike Catapano (Lisfranc) won’t need surgery. The DE, a Bayville native, was placed on injured reserve Tuesday . . . CB Marcus Williams (MCL sprain) did not practice. Neither did CB Antonio Cromartie (hip) and C Nick Mangold (hand), who were given rest days. S Dion Bailey (ankle) and LB Calvin Pace (abdomen) were limited.
