Injury Wrap: Revis Out, Williams Doubtful


Updated, 2:50 p.m. ET

Todd Bowles left no wiggle room for Darrelle Revis.

Revis (concussion) didn't practice for a second straight week and the Jets head coach said after today's practice that the All-Pro cornerback will not play Sunday against the Giants.

"He got sent home, but he was in meetings today" for the first time this week, Bowles said, adding of Revis' availability for the rest of December, "It all depends on how he's coming along. Hopefully, he's feeling better next week, but right now it's too early to tell."

The coach didn't completely rule out his other injured corner, Marcus Williams (knee), who also sat out practice this week, but he said Williams is doubtful for the Giants.

"I'm skeptical about him" being available, Bowles said.

So similar to the ninth defensive play of Sunday's win over Miami forward, the Jets will go without two of their top four corners against the Giants and their big-play connection of QB Eli Manning to WR Odell Beckham.

But Bowles was not wringing his hands about turning over the corner spot opposite Antonio Cromartie to some combination of Buster Skrine, Darrin Walls, Dexter McDougle and Dee Milliner.

"Odell Beckham is a challenge even if we had [everyone]," Bowles said. "Great players like that always challenge you game-plan-wise. But luckily for our guys that back up, we were fortunate that all of those guys have played in games so they aren't coming in raw, they have some experience, and they understand what's going on with the defense."

Walls said he is ready and prepared to "help the team out" again as he did with his 50 defensive plays and 22 special teams plays against the Dolphins.

And the coach said of Milliner being involved, "Depending on the game plan, he could be. ... He's practicing hard, he's game-ready. But there are guys in front of him that are game-ready, too, so he's just got to wait his turn." Two injuries and rehab have kept Milliner out of game action for over a year.

Bowles said the only other player doubtful for the Giants is S Dion Bailey (ankle), who's sat out the last three games. LB Calvin Pace (abdomen) was limited in practice today and is questionable for Sunday. All other Jets injured players practiced full and are probable.

For the Giants,TE Larry Donnell (neck), S Brandon Meriweather (knee) and LB Devon Kennard (hamstring/foot) all did not practice and are listed as out. T Marshall Newhouse (back) and C Weston Richburg (ankle) were limited and are questionable for the Jets game.
