Jets will place Darrelle Revis on IR

The New York Jets plan on placing cornerback Darrelle Revis on season ending injured reserve now that they need his roster spot with safety Eric Smith suffering an injury this past Monday.

Jets head coach Rex Ryan admitted it’s no longer worth leaving revis on the active roster.

“With our time situation we’re going to need that roster spot,” Ryan said. “…I said it if it was a 0.002 percent chance, well it’s not that high.”

Revis is scheduled to undergo ACL surgery next week.
