Darrelle Revis Tore His ACL, Is Done for the Year

Will made it clear this morning that, in spite of the 23-20 victory, the Jets' game against the Dolphins on Sunday was a bit of a train wreck. Topping the wreckage was Darrelle Revis's injury — a buckled knee that saw him carted off the field in the third quarter, never to return. It didn't look good, and Jets fans feared the worst. They got it.

Speaking to reporters this morning, Rex Ryan confirmed that an MRI revealed what sounds like a complete tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in Revis's left knee. He'll have surgery in a few weeks (if I remember correctly from this past Knicks season, they have to wait until the swelling goes down) followed by a recovery period that will almost certainly consume the rest of the season.

This is a devastating turn of events for a Jets defense that's already been struggling and that looked particularly weak when a concussed Revis sat against the Steelers. Bad, bad news.
