Jets' Revis to have surgery Tuesday
Florham Park, NJ (Sports Network) - New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis will undergo surgery Tuesday to have his torn left ACL repaired.
Revis was hurt during a Week 3 game against Miami and was finally placed on season-ending injured reserve last Friday.
The All-Pro made his first public statements since the injury on Monday and said he wants to return "as fast as possible." The Jets had initially hesitated to put him on IR in hopes that he could come back very late in the season or in the postseason.
"As soon as I feel 100 percent, I'll be ready to go whether that's January, February, March, it doesn't matter," Revis said at a press conference Monday.
"I'm a confident player. I never had an injury like this. This is all new for me as well. But, yeah, I'm a hard worker. I know I'm going to work my butt off and get back to where I need to be."
Revis played in just two games this season. He suffered a mild concussion in the season opener against the Buffalo Bills and sat out the Week 2 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers before returning against the Dolphins.
