Coach Todd Bowles sent Revis home on Wednesday because doctors told him the cornerback was not healthy enough to even sit on on team meetings.
Revis sustained the concussion in the third quarter of the Jets’ 24–17 loss to the Houston Texans last Sunday. He left the game under his own power after tackling Texans running back Akeem Hunt, but laid on the field for a while with trainers by his side after making the hit.
Bowles did not rule out the chance of Revis returning by Sunday, but Walder reports the coach did not sound optimistic.
“We’re ready to play without him,” Bowles said. “If he comes back it will be a bonus. We’ll see later in the week, but we’re preparing to play without him.”
The Jets (5–5) kick off against the Dolphins (4–6) at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
