Jets' Win Could Be Huge Loss

Article excerpt

MIAMI - The Jets and Dolphins each worked exactly four hours Sunday to determine a winner.

So in Nick Folk's estimation, why shouldn't some of his teammates get some rest, once a play has been blown dead?

Folk hit a game-winning 33-yard field goal with 6:04 to go in overtime to lift the Jets to a 23-20 victory over Miami at Sun Life Stadium. It came after Miami's Randy Starks had blocked his previous attempt. However, that one didn't count because Miami coach Joe Philbin had called a timeout just before the kick, and Folk said his teammates didn't block once they heard the whistle.

Still, it remains to be seen whether the Jets suffered a major loss to their roster.

Superstar cornerback Darrelle Revis left the game with a potentially serious injury in the third quarter. His left knee appeared to buckle without him suffering any contact. He didn't return.

"No news yet," Jets coach Rex Ryan said after the game, adding Revis would have an MRI today.

"You're always concerned with guys being injured, and clearly with Darrelle, that's your best player, so of course you're going to be concerned. Again, I don't know anything right now about it. We'll find out with the MRI" today.

Revis, who was returning after missing the previous game because of a concussion, was able to walk off gingerly under his own power, but soon was taken away in a cart to be examined further.

"Anytime you play without the best corner in the league, there's a difference," safety Yeremiah Bell said when asked about Revis potentially missing an extended amount of time. "But we have guys who can step in and fill the role."

The likely starter if Revis is out would be top nickel back Kyle Wilson. When asked if he would be ready for such responsibility, he smiled and said, "That's my job, man. It really doesn't change anything. [I'll get] maybe a little more playing time."

Actually, it would be a major change for the Jets, who have depended on the four-time Pro Bowler Revis to lock down one receiver and cut the field in half for the opposing quarterback. …
