Revis, who was traded to the Buccaneers this past offseason from the Jets, was said to be a game-time decision with a groin injury that took him out of last week's win over the Detroit Lions. The veteran cornerback was pitted straight up against Calvin Johnson, who finished the day with 14 catches for 115 yards but was held scoreless in the game.
The seventh-year cornerback has just two interceptions on the season, along with seven passes defended, in his first season with Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers have recovered from a disastrous 0-8 start to win their last three games by a combined nine points, with Revis tasked to take on the top receiver for each team. It's expected that Revis will be matched up with Panthers receiver Smith on Sunday.
