Jets' Revis probable with tight hammy, likely to play vs. Pats

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Cornerback Darrelle Revis is listed as probable and expected to play in the New York Jets' game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, despite tightness in his left hamstring.

"I thought he looked pretty good," Jets coach Rex Ryan said of Revis on Friday. "We never did a whole lot with him, but when he was out there, he looked pretty good."

Revis was limited for the second consecutive day of practice after participating in about half the session Thursday.

Revis wasn't available to the media Friday. He said Thursday he expected to play, and he appeared to be unhindered during the half-hour of practice the media watched Friday.

"I never saw him limping or anything else," Ryan said. "When he was tight, his hamstring was tight, you're not going to push him through it."

Revis missed all of training camp while holding out for 36 days in a contract dispute. He has said he came into the season in great shape, but he acknowledged that he's a bit behind in his football conditioning.

"It can't help," Ryan said, adding that Revis played well in Monday night's season-opening 10-9 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

"We probably played him too many snaps," the coach said. "I think that was probably the biggest contributor to him tightening up. Like I said, I expect him to go and play great."

The Jets will need Revis to since he's expected to cover Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss. Revis held Moss to nine catches for just 58 yards and one touchdown in two games last season.

Meanwhile, Jets safety Brodney Pool was listed as questionable with a sprained right ankle. Signed as a free agent during the offseason, Pool missed the opener because of the injury.

"I feel good about him," Ryan said. "Brodney did a lot of work today, more work today than he had done (Thursday) and the previous days. So, I feel pretty good that he'll play."
