Darrelle Revis sidelined 2-3 months by wrist surgery


Darrelle Revis has gone under the knife.


The New York Jets announced that the Pro Bowl cornerback underwent wrist surgery on Thursday and will be in a hard cast for the next two-to-three months. The team says Revis will be "limited" in the team's offseason program and is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

ESPN reported that Revis might have injured the wrist in Week 3's loss to the Eagles, playing through an issue the team believed to be a sprain. The soreness lingered, however, prompting an offseason re-examination.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Revis had a torn ligament in the wrist.

Revis played 14 games last season (missing two with a concussion), finishing with five interceptions and leading the Jets with nine takeaways. It marked Revis' return to Gang Green after spending the previous two seasons with the Buccaneers and Patriots, respectively.

Revis has suffered only one other serious injury in his career -- a torn ACL that cost him most of the 2012 season. Revis will turn 31 in July is entering his 10th season. If his recovery goes to plan, he'll be on the field in Week 1.
