BREAKING: Revis to play Sunday versus Carolina


Despite missing the entire second half of last week's game against the Detroit Lions due to a groin injury, Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis will play Sunday versus the Carolina Panthers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.

Revis was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday due to the strained muscle. He returned Friday but was limited,a movehead coach Greg Schiano called a "step in the right direction."

Reviswas listed on the official injury report as questionable. He told Sports Talk Florida Friday that he would be a "game-time decision" and that he would need totest the leg out once he got outonto the field Sunday.

It is what it is. I cant control, well I wish I could control injuries, but I cant control my injury. When I feel ready to go, thats when its time for me to get out there and play," Revis said.

If at any point he needs to leave the game, the team doeshavea contingency plan.

He will be matched up against Carolina's leading receiver, Steve Smith, who hadfour catches and 42 receiving yards when the teams last met in October.

We feel that he is the key guy," Revis said of Smith. "He gets them going. He has a lot of emotion after catches sometimes. We want to take that away from them. We are playing great as a secondary, so hopefully we put another game in this week."
