The Jets on Friday made the expected official, as they ruled out star cornerback Darrelle Revis for Sunday's home game against the Dolphins. Revis sustained a concussion in last week's loss at the Texans. "He comes in for the morning, for treatment, and then he gets sent home," Jets coach Todd Bowles said of Revis' status. "He's doing a little better each day, but not good enough for physical activity. There's always a concern when somebody gets a concussion, so we're trying to take our time and get it right with him." Bowles said he's not sure how far along Revis is in the NFL's post-concussion assessment protocol, which will determine when he can practice and play again. (NJ.com)
FF Today's Take:Revis' absence should give Jarvis Landry and Rishard Matthews a little more space to get free in the Jets' secondary this Sunday.
Rookie WR overcoming time lost from offeason foot surgery
The Miami Dolphins came into this week of practice believing rookie WR DeVante Parker would be available for the regular-season opener against the Washington Redskins. And then this week's practices happened. Players said Parker looked good on Monday. And better on Wednesday. And then better again on Thursday. And so how good has Parker been?
One player said Parker still isn't in the same league with Greg Jennings on route running or showing the kind of chemistry with QB Ryan Tannehill that Jarvis Landry has. But that he's a good combination of the two and is getting back some of the explosion he had at rookie minicamp.(Miami Herald)
FF Today's Take:The buy-low window for Parker appears to be closing fast. His path to a starting job appears to be fairly clear as well since Kenny Stills was limited in the preseason with a calf injury and Jennings is on the downside of career. Expect Jennings to be the starter opposite Jarvis Landry for a few weeks, but Parker's game-breaking ability should allow him to move past the ex-Packer and Viking before long. Parker has WR2 upside and could eventually move past Landry as Tannehill's top target.
