FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Jets' star cornerback Darrelle Revis did not practice Wednesday and his status for Sunday's game against the Eagles is in question.

Coach Todd Bowles made no mention of Revis' absence on the practice field and the Jets declined to shed light on the severity of his reported groin injury. Reporters were instead told that Bowles would address Revis' status during his news conference Thursday.

It wasn't until 5:06 p.m., more than an hour after Bowles addressed reporters, that the official Jets' and Eagles' injury reports were released. Revis -- who was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his two fumble recoveries and interception in the Jets' 20-7 win over the Colts on Monday night -- was one of eight Jets players who did not practice and was listed on the Jets' injury report.

It's possible Revis was simply given a rest day on a short week following. Typically, though, rest days are indicated as "non-injury related" on team injury reports.

It's also possible that the Jets (2-0) are keeping Revis' status under wraps for 24 hours strictly for game-planning purposes. But as of now, it's unclear if the 30-year-old shutdown corner, who underwent major knee surgery in 2012, will need to sit out additional days because of his sore groin.

Running back Chris Ivory -- who was limited in three practices last week because of a groin injury -- also did not practice Wednesday because of a quadriceps injury. Right guard Willie Colon (knee), receivers Eric Decker (knee) and Chris Owusu (knee), linebackers Lorenzo Mauldin (concussion) and Trevor Reilly (finger) and cornerback Darrin Walls (hamstring) did not practice as well. But Bowles never gave an indication that several players had been spectators in practice.

When asked during his Tuesday conference call if anyone besides Decker was hurt on Monday night, Bowles said: "Off the top of my head, no. A lot of people are sore, but no real injuries. Owusu hurt his leg. I don't know the severity of that one yet. I'm still waiting for that one to come back."

However, less than 15 minutes after the conference call ended, Bowles divulged on ESPN-NY radio that Owusu could be out for two weeks.

When beat reporters followed up on Owusu's injury on Wednesday, Bowles said: "He's going to get a knee scope that's going to keep him out a week or two. He definitely won't be ready this Sunday . . . He's a tough guy, he fought through it. I didn't see it during the film [review]. He could have gotten hurt on any number of plays, he just sucked it up and played."

Meanwhile, it's also possible the Jets will be without Decker against the Eagles.

"We'll see how he feels going forward," Bowles said.

The Eagles (0-2) also are dealing with a major injury. Star running back, DeMarco Murray, left practice Wednesday with a hamstring injury and, according to ESPN, underwent an MRI. His status for Sunday's game is in doubt.

The former Cowboy, who signed a five-year, $42-million deal with the Eagles in March, has rushed for just 11 yards in his first two games with his new team.
