When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers played the Carolina Panthers last weekend, they did so with out cornerback Darrelle Revis for a while. He left the game with “shoulder and chest” issues, but in comments he made to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune, it could have been for another reason.
“They’re saying I got knocked out for a second and came back, but I’m fine,’’ Revis said. “[The shoulder and chest] are still bothering me a little bit, but I’ll be all right.’’
While he seemed to collect a few new injuries, the groin injury that was bothering him coming into the game wasn’t an issue.
“No, that’s fine and really I’m happy that that is out of the equation, because as a DB we need our legs to run all day,” Revis said. “So, yeah, I’m really glad that’s not a factor any more.’’
He had to pass a concussion test to return to practice and said he would be good to go against the Buffalo Bills next week.
