FLORHAM PARK, N. J. (AP) -- New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has been cleared to run and lift weights -- but not for contact -- after suffering a concussion in the team's season-opening victory over the Buffalo Bills.

Coach Rex Ryan says Revis won't practice Wednesday, but it's an encouraging sign that the All-Pro is resuming normal activities. Revis must be cleared by the team physician and an independent neurological consultant, per NFL protocol, to play at Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Revis was injured when he dived to tackle C.J. Spiller and was accidentally kicked in the head by teammate Bart Scott.

Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley will also likely not practice with a stiff back. He was selected as the AFC special teams player of the week.
