Jets CB Revis questionable vs. Bills; LB Pace eyes return

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- It might be another week before Darrelle Revis plays again for the New York Jets.

The All-Pro cornerback didn't practice Wednesday, spending part of the session on a stationary bike and also working with a trainer on the side. Revis is recovering from a strained left hamstring, and his availability for Sunday's game at Buffalo remains uncertain.

"He's still questionable there," Jets coach Rex Ryan said. "But I don't want to rule him out yet ... because I'd hate to be fined by the league if he did play."

Ryan has said the team wants Revis to be completely healed before he takes the field again. Revis was injured during the first half of the Jets' Week 2 victory over the New England Patriots.

If Revis doesn't play against the Bills this weekend, Ryan said there's a chance Drew Coleman could start over a struggling rookie Kyle Wilson opposite Antonio Cromartie.

Meanwhile, linebacker Calvin Pace was on the practice field Wednesday for the first time since breaking his right foot during the preseason, but he didn't participate in team drills. By the time the half-hour window the media are allowed to watch was over, Pace was working with a trainer with his jersey off.

Still, Ryan didn't rule out being able to have Pace in pass-rushing situations against the Bills.

"Of the two, I think Calvin has a better chance to play," Ryan said.

Pace said he has to talk with the Jets' training staff before thinking he has a realistic shot of playing.

"If I'm doing more and I'm able to do some seven-on-seven (drills) and maybe team (drills), then it might be 50-50," Pace said.

Backup offensive lineman Wayne Hunter (badly bruised right shin) and backup linebacker Jamaal Westerman (ankle and hamstring) also didn't practice. Center Nick Mangold (right shoulder) and Jason Taylor (left elbow) were limited.

Right tackle Damien Woody didn't practice because of what Ryan called "a personal issue."
