Darrelle Revis injury: Buccaneers CB should be ready for Week 1

USA TODAY Sports

Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano said the Bucs are getting Revis ready for the start of the season.

New Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis will not take part in OTAs, but is preparing to be ready by Week 1 of the 2013 NFL season, according to Pewter Report. Coach Greg Schiano said everything is "gearing toward" getting Revis on the field for the start of the season.


Revis tore the ACL in his left knee on Sept. 23 and was traded from the Jets to the Bucs this offseason. Revis is still rehabbing his leg at this point, now working with the Tampa medical and training staff. Tampa gave up the No. 13 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft and a conditional 2014 selection to get Revis and then signed him to a six-year, $96 million extension.

Due to their heavy investment in Revis, the Bucs aren't rushing to get him back on the field before he is ready. He likely won't see the field until at least the start of training camp, if not later, but it appears he is on track to be 100-percent healthy by Week 1 of the season.
