REVIS: We're Being Cautious Right Now

Transcript of cornerback Darrelle Revis' remarks to reporters following Sunday's morning training camp practice at SUNY Cortland:

On if he's concerned…

About the leg? No, I'm not concerned. We're just sort of being cautious right now. The trainers are — you know John Mellody — doing a great job. We're just making sure we do our maintenance for me and being cautious about it.

On if this is something he'll be keeping an eye on due to past problems…

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I have had a lot of hamstring problems. So this is just something where we're trying to take care of it before it even occurs. It's just a little tightness. I loosened it up this morning and was ready to go. But you know, 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.

On if there was a specific play where he felt his hamstring tighten up…

No, I just think it's just the process of just getting back into it. We ran the conditioning test the day before and we've been doing a lot of work. Practice has been a little more intense this year, and I think that's because of Coach [Tony] Sparano coming in and it's kind of a fast pace for the offense now. So I think it's kind of a bunch of reps we've been taking. And my hamstring, I'm just trying to be really cautious with it.

On if he's anxious to get out and hit… I hit this morning, in the individuals, in the beginning of practice. I hit this morning. It's just I was ready to go and DT [Dennis Thurman], our secondary coach, looked at me and said, "You're down." I looked at him and said, "I'm practicing." And he said, "No, you're not." And then Mellody came over and said, "You need to sit out."
