Darrelle Revis is looking forward to a return to semi normalcy.
Ever since he felt tightness in his left hamstring, causing him to pull up gimpy late in the first half against the Patriots on Sept. 19 and subsequently miss the next two games, Revis has been besieged almost daily at his locker. He's constantly asked about his hamstring, an inquiry he says should cease after today because he's finally completely healthy.
"It’s 100 percent," Revis said after the Jets' light hour long practice today. "So I shouldn't hear this question any more. It’s just [time] for me to get back into football, and focus on football and play football."
Revis said he "felt great today" and reported no issues. He's basically licking his chops to get out there in six more days against Aaron Rodgers & Co.
"I’m ready to go," he said. "I’ll be there Sunday, we did everything we could this week. This week helped out, me staying up here and getting all the treatment I needed to get. So, I’m ready to go."
While most of his teammates were scattered across the country during the bye week, the Pro Bowl cornerback spent most of his time at The Hangar getting treatment, saying, "I was living over here."
He said he ran full speed during defensive back drills throughout the week and there was no swelling afterward.
As for how he looked in practice: "He was moving around great today," Rex Ryan said. "I think we are going to see Darrelle at 100 percent. So, that’s exciting to me."
It's obviously also exciting for Revis. After a lengthy, 35-day holdout due to his contract dispute, the nagging injury, and then getting ticketed for speeding and careless driving, it's certainly been a rather eventful time of late for the All-Pro.
"The last month, there’s been a lot of stuff going on, and me also coming in late," Revis said. "But now I can settle in and just play football."
