Darrelle Revis took part in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' walkthrough Friday, and his status for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers may be improving, according to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune. Revis suffered a groin injury last week against the Detroit Lions, and was marked "day-to-day" by head coach Greg Schiano.
Revis missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, seemingly putting his status in doubt. His participation in walkthrough suggests that he may be part of the Bucs' gameplan for Sunday, however. The Buccaneers may be comfortable playing Revis despite his lack of preparation this week, given his veteran status.
The Buccaneers appear to be healthy otherwise, heading into their bout against the 8-3 Panthers. Offensive guard Carl Nicks is the only other player on the Buccaneers' injury report who did not participate in practice Wednesday and Thursday. The five other players on the injury report were full participants in practice Thursday.
Revis' addition would be a major boost to a team that's suddenly has some momentum, winning three straight games after an 0-8 start to the season. Last week, the Buccaneers had four interceptions against Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions despite Revis' absence for more than a half of football.
