"Can we talk about football?" a clearly annoyed Revis said. "I'm fine."
Revis spent much of the first half of the season answering questions about his strained left hamstring, which caused him to miss two games and left him at less than 100 percent in a few others. Ryan said this latest situation isn't a big deal.
"I expect Revis to play, obviously," Ryan said. "That's more precautionary than anything else with that hamstring."
Revis didn't appear at all hobbled while walking in the locker room.
"We did hold him out a little bit today," Ryan said. "His hamstring is just a little tight. It's not like he pulled it or anything. You'd rather be a little more cautious there."
James Ihedigbo, recovering from a high ankle sprain and knee injury, didn't practice, but Ryan is hopeful the safety will play.
"I think we'll start Dwight and see about Dig's availability," Ryan said. "I feel pretty good about starting Dwight. He's a smart kid."
Smith took over the signal-calling duties when Leonhard was injured, and defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said safety Brodney Pool will draw that assignment this week.
"You generally prefer that your safeties make those calls," Ryan said. "I'll tell you, Brodney Pool is new to the system this year, but Brodney has worked his tail off."
