According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, the New York Jets are upset that Darrelle Revis didn’t use a doctor from Atlantic Health to perform his ACL surgery, since they’re one of the Jets’ sponsors.
Additionally, the Jets have expressed disappointment with Revis that he did not use a doctor from Atlantic Health when he had surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament of his knee last season. Atlantic Health is a team sponsor and has its name on the team’s training facility in Florham Park, N.J.
Revis had the surgery done by orthopedic specialist Dr. Russ Warren of the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Warren is considered one of the top doctors in the country by athletes and is also a team doctor for the New York Giants. A source said the Jets questioned Revis on three occasions about his decision to use Warren and indicated that Atlantic Health was unhappy with the situation.
Are the Jets really serious? I hope this is a joke. I don’t blame Revis for going with his own guy. It’s his ACL, not the Jets’. I know the Jets pay him, but it’s ultimately Revis’ body.
