Darrelle Revis was limited in practice today because of “a little soreness” in his right hamstring. But not surprisingly, the Jets cornerback didn’t feel like talking much about the injury.
“Can we talk about football, please?” he asked. “I’m playing Sunday. I’m fine.”
Revis – who nursed a left hamstring injury in the early part of the season – told reporters his right hamstring felt sore during last week's loss to Miami, but when pressed further about the injury, he grew testy. Head coach Rex Ryan said he excepts Revis to play Sunday and the decision to limit the cornerback in practice was strictly precautionary.
In other injury news, safety Eric Smith (concussion) and right tackle Damien Woody (knee) were ruled out of Sunday’s game. Cornerback Dwight Lowery is expected to start in Smith’s place.
Safety James Ihedigbo (ankle/knee) did not practice, but stretched, sprinted and participated in position drills. He said he expects to play against Pittsburgh. Trevor Pryce (hip) did not practice either, according to Ryan, and it’s unclear whether the defensive tackle will be able to play.
The Jets also signed defensive lineman Jarron Gilbert to their active roster in order to prevent another team from snatching him off the practice squad. To make room, they waived receiver Patrick Turner.
