The last time the Jets swept Miami, it was Darrelle Revis' rookie season of 2007. If the Green & White are to break out the brooms again this season, they'll have to do it without Revis.
Head coach Todd Bowles said after today's practice that the Jets' starting cornerback will miss the rematch with the Dolphins due to the concussion he suffered in the third quarter at Houston last Sunday.
"Anytime you lose a guy like that, you lose a one-on-one master matchup guy," Bowles said. "But we have other guys who can play and have played and will have to step in."
The coach said Marcus Williams will probably get the start for Revis, with Buster Skrine remaining the "starter" in his nickel role.
Revis, Bowles said, "comes in in the morning for treatment, the he gets sent home. He's doing a little better each day, but not well enough for physical activity."
For the most part, the Jets' other injured players appeared ready to go for the Dolphins. C Nick Mangold, who missed much of the Texans game with hand lacerations that prevented him from snapping, practiced full at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center today and is probable for Miami. So is DE Sheldon Richardson (hamstring), who missed the Houston game but has practiced full all week.
The only other Jet not looking up is S Dion Bailey, who has already missed two games with his ankle sprain and is listed as doubtful. All other injured players are listed as probable for the game.
For the Dolphins, T Ju'Waun James (toe) will miss another game while WR Jarvis Landry (knee) and LB Jelani Jenkins (ankle) are questionable.
