Darrelle Revis says 'no question' he can return to dominance

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New York Jets start cornerback Darrelle Revis will undergo surgery on his torn ACL Tuesday morning.

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis said Monday that "if everything goes right" he is confident he can return next season as a dominant player. Revis, who tore his ACL against the Miami Dolphins, will be operated on Tuesday morning by New York Giants' team physician Dr. Russell Warren.

"Once I'm 100 percent and I feel like that (with) my body, to me there's no question that I won't be back to where I was in my previous years of performing and doing what I do best," Revis said.

Before being injured Revis was seeking a contract extension from the Jets. He did not want to talk about what the injury does to his contract situation, saying "I'm not even focused on that."

Revis said he knew something was wrong immediately when he was injured.

"I've been hit in the knee 1,000 times. I just knew this wasn't a hyperextension. I knew it was something much worse. I figured it was an ACL, meniscus or PCL (tear). The doctors told me it was an ACL, so when I heard that I knew I couldn't play the rest of the season. I just had to wrap my brain around that and get ready for the next things to come ahead."
