Darrelle Revis Injury: Jets Corner Cleared For Physical Activity

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was forced to leave Sunday's season opener against the Buffalo Bills in the fourth quarter with what was diagnosed as a mild concussion. But, there is good news from "Revis Island" as Rich Cimini, who covers the Jets for ESPN New York, reports that the cornerback has been cleared for physical activity.

His status for Sunday's matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field is still up in the air, and the 27-year-old won't practice with the team on Wednesday.

Revis may have sustained the injury on an inadvertent kick to the head by teammate Bart Scott. After the incident, he could be seen holding his head while on the field before being escorted to locker room by the Jets' medical and training staff.

He did not address the media afterward and head coach Rex Ryan wasn't informed of the injury until Monday morning. As of now, the situation with Revis appears to be day-to-day.
