Darrelle Revis Injury: Jets look to test Buccaneers cornerback

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their star cornerback, but the New York Jets will look to test him.

Darrelle Revis is healthy for today's game, but that doesn't mean he will be asked to do all of the heavy lifting in the Tampa Bay secondary. The Buccaneers will monitor his snap counts and the routes the Jets run against him, and give him breaks if needed, according to Ian Rapoport.

At this point it's not clear what his role will be in his first game back from knee surgery. It's safe to assume that the Bucs will be a little cautious and won't expose him too much if he shows any signs of struggling or limited movement. That, incidentally, is exactly what the New York Jets will be looking for, too.

Rex Ryan has previously talked about his 'Revis Rules', which include not throwing to the far hash mark if he's lined up there. Revis' movement and his return from ACL surgery will be the main subject for today's game, and could be the biggest key to today's game. And unfortunately, the Bucs have no real control over his health.
