Darrelle Revis injury forces Jets to make defensive changes

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said changes will be coming to the team's defensive scheme following the season-ending ACL tear by cornerback Darrelle Revis on Sunday.

In an interview on the Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio New York, Ryan discussed at length how monumental the injury to Revis is for the team, even going so far to say that it is the worst thing that could have happened this year. Ryan explained that Revis cannot be replaced by one player and the team will need to compensate for his loss collectively.


"When you take a guy that is clearly the premiere corner in this league and you take him away from your football team, you got to do things differently [...] You can't put it on one guy to replace a Darrelle Revis. Kyle Wilson is not going to be able to replace Darrelle Revis, but we have to find a way to get it done and we have to do it collectively."
