Darrelle Revis was limited during New York Jets practice Sunday with hamstring tightness. Revis has had problems with his hamstrings before, but the cornerback said after practice that he was held out only as a precaution with training camp just getting underway.
"Yeah, I have had a lot of hamstring problems," Revis said. "This is just something where we're trying to take care of it before it even occurs. It's just a little tightness, loosened it up this morning and was ready to go. But you know, [head athletic trainer] John Mellody told some of the coaches to sit me out. I think the deal out there today was they just wanted to sit me out and be ready for next practice."
Revis took part in drills only on the day. The tightness occurred in the opposite hamstring that has given him trouble in the past, but head coach Rex Ryan echoed Revis in saying he wasn't too worried.
"If we were playing a game, I'd be concerned and he would play," Ryan said. "He's had some hamstring issues in previous training camps where he probably fought through some and then pulled (it). We don't want that to happen. It was just a minor thing. I think he thinks he'll be out there tomorrow, but anytime you get that kind of situation with any player, you hit the breaks to avoid doing something foolish."
