Schiano: Revis will be ready for camp-- Thu Jul 18 2:40 pm --
Availability to be determined next week
Tampa Bay HC Greg Schiano said Thursday that cornerback Darrelle Revis will be on the field “in some capacity’’ when the team opens training camp next week.
Revis is recovering from a torn ACL suffered last season. Schiano said defensive end Adrian Clayborn and guards Carl Nicks and Davin Joseph, who also are coming off injuries, are in similar situations to Revis.
FF Today's Take:All four players will likely be limited at the start of camp, but each of them appear to be on track for Week 1, when the Bucs face Revis' former team - the New York Jets. Revis is the key piece to the Bucs' facelift in their defensive backfield, where they were among the worst in the NFL in 2012. The healthy return of Nicks and Joseph should allow Doug Martin to pick up where he left off as a rookie.
