Darrelle Revis will be ready for Week 1, Bucs GM says

Darrelle Revis has yet to join his new Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammates in practice, but general manager Mark Dominik has become the latest optimistic voice on the matter.

During a Friday appearance on "NFL Total Access," Dominik didn't hesitate when asked how confident he was that Revis will be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

"Totally confident," Dominik said. "He's in great shape right now, he's running full speed, he's cutting, he's doing all the things we'd want him to do from a training standpoint, a rehabilitation standpoint.

"We're going to keep him at our pace, but the whole point is that he'll walk out to the first day of training camp, he'll have the pads on and he'll be ready hopefully for the Jets (in) Week 1. We're expecting that."

Dominik is in sync with Revis, who said earlier this week that he's "confident" he'll be on the field Sept. 8 at MetLife Stadium. The timing of Revis' knee injury (Week 3 last season) has given the star cornerback plenty of recovery time.

Dominik wouldn't be this open if the Buccaneers had internal doubts about Revis' timetable.
