Revis, Pace, Six Other Jets ‘Probable’ for Vikes

Posted by Randy Lange on October 9, 2010 – 6:46 pm

It was a beautiful Saturday around North Jersey and also a particularly healthful one around the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center.

Of the nine players on the Jets’ injury report heading into Monday night’s game against Minnesota, eight participated fully in all team drills at today’s final practice before the game, and all are listed as probable for the Vikings, including cornerback Darrelle Revis.

Revis, who had been bothered by a hamstring pull in the days before Game 2 against New England and aggravated the injury late in the second half on the touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Randy Moss against the Patriots, appears ready to return to action against Moss, now a Viking, former Jets QB Brett Favre, and the Minnesota offense. 

“I haven’t had any tweaks when I’ve been out there running the past two practices,” Revis told reporters after Friday’s workout, “and I’ve been running full speed. They’ve been monitoring me every step of the way, just to make sure there are no tweaks or pulls in my hamstring.  As of today, if I can play, I would go out there and play.”

The Jets and Vikings provided their final injury reports for Monday’s primetime affair after today’s practices. By NFL parlance, “probable” status means it’s “a virtual certainty” the player “will be available for normal duty.”

Along with Revis, C Nick Mangold (shoulder), DE Shaun Ellis (knee) and OL Wayne Hunter (shin) all improved from limited participation Friday to full-go today. LBs Calvin Pace (foot) and Jason Taylor (elbow) and FB John Conner (neck) all remained full participants.

The only injured Jet who didn’t get the “promotion” to probable was LB Jamaal Westerman (ankle), who was limited today and is questionable for the game.

    Sounds like Revis is ready to go. I up his is ok and not pushing himself to come back early just to get even with Moss. I would still put AC on Moss at times even if Revis is back.

    Praying for continued health throughout the season.. With our balance, depth, and versatility of the many players and rotations we have, let’s all take a deep breath and visualize our Jets winning every game (one at a time ) See you in Dallas :-)

    Great news! I can barely wait to see the team in action, I may be a little overly optimistic but I dont see anyone beating the jets, except maybe the jets themselves.

    knowing that bretts actions are the only ones reported in the last few years of the jets and their female workers doesn’t say a lot about him or the guys who brought him here looking for a quick fix. talk about due diligence. talk about karma, it’s name is pennington.

    AC is no revis ….Revis is the best cover corner in the NFL and he is physical too…AC is not physical, shy’s away from tackles….an average corner…hopefully kyle wilson is ready by next year.,

    Y’know, after all of the wishy-washy stuff that Revis said before his holdout started, I now have trouble trusting ANYthing he says. I don’t know if his motivations are to prove himself against Moss, if he’s worried about his ability to shut down Moss, or what. He’s saying he SHOULD be okay to play, but we’ll see… Watching his press conference, I keep having flashbacks to his stumbling comments about his contract status prior to training camp: the same “we’ll see” was spewing from his mouth then.

    I hope he plays – I hope it’s just poorly expressed optimism and not hesitency, but … we’ll see. *smirk*

    Very Excited and feeling like we are going to get a GREAT night and see OUR JETS Whack the purple people HARD

    Monday night hasn’t been too kind, and last year, when Pace came back from his 4 game suspension, he had a horrible game and let Ronnie Brown run all over the place, can’t let that happen against AP. I’m excited to see what Santonio can do, hopefully there is some chemistry there. I’m really hoping this is the game the D steps up and puts some points on the board. We all know Favre will throw some up for grabs in this game. I also hope Revis is ready and not rushing out there because of Moss. I agree Gregg…we’ll see… GoJets!!!

    Really though, there is no way the Jets should lose, unless they beat themselves, like they did against Baltimore.

    good news to hear before gametime

    with pace returning, don’t see why jets don’t line up thomas in the down position on passing downs. he was drafted as defensive lineman. with ellis, thomas, pace and taylor jets can have alot of pressure on quarterback. this is off the subject but when I hear people knocking Gastineau and his antics of long ago, look at these players today and what they do.It is more classless then what he ever did,I met the guy years ago coming off the e train in manhattan and he acknowledged me saying hello, how are you. more than what I can say about players of today.

DONOT under play Cromartie ,he has shown he deserves the respect!! GO GANG GREEN infect the purple heads! Favre who?
