Fair enough, it's early in camp and nobody wants to push their luck when they feel a little tightness in their leg. Might as well rest it a day or two so Revis doesn't make the injury worse. And for now, the team says (via multiple reports) that Revis isn't participating in team drills or 7-on-7 Sunday.
But you also have to wonder if this is a little bit of subterfuge from Revis. Though he ultimately decided not to hold out from training camp, Revis supposedly wants a new deal to replace the four-year, $46 million contract he signed just two years ago.
And you remember what happened before the 2010 season when the team and Revis were squabbling over that contract? Revis held out from training camp, but before all that he missed practice time during mini-camp because he claimed he was light-headed. As I wrote at the time, “Revis basically winked when he used that excuse. He said he was insulted by the Jets offer and that, as of now, the contract talks ‘(don't) look good.'”
Well, the contract talks don't look good in 2012 either -- general manager Mike Tannenbaum reportedly refused multiple times to meet with Revis' agents to talk about a potential new deal.
Revis told reporters Sunday that the injury wasn't serious and that he would practice Monday. He also said the injury has nothing to do with his contract. And he's probably telling the truth. But he's also given reporters a reason to ask that question in the first place.
