FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Darrelle Revis says there’s “no question” he will return from a torn knee ligament to be the same dominant player he has been throughout his career with the New York Jets.
The star cornerback says Monday in his first public comments since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee three weeks ago that it has been hard to watch games since “you’re looking outside in.” Revis will have surgery in New York on Tuesday to repair his ACL, a procedure that will include taking a graft from his patellar tendon.
Revis says he wants to return “as fast as possible,” although normal recovery takes several months. He has been rehabbing at the team’s facility while preparing for surgery.
Revis is filming a documentary that will chronicle his comeback.
