There will be no dramatic Super Bowl return for Darrelle Revis. Head coach Rex Ryan said Revis will have surgery next week to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, suffered almost three weeks ago at Miami.
Rex Ryan has not dashed his Super Bowl hopes — or the chance that Darrelle Revis will be there on the field with the New York Jets this season.
Yankees GM Brian Cashman has insisted all along the target for Mariano Rivera’s return is 2013. But what if he’s ready this season? Is that even possible?
“My surgery was a success, it went perfectly,” Rivera tweeted. “I am looking forward to beginning my rehab soon. Thanks as always for your prayers.”
Rivera said the blood clot in his right calf has cleared up and he is set for surgery on his injured knee.
The 27-year-old — who took over for Mariano Rivera when he tore his ACL and was lost for the season — has been unavailable since Saturday with soreness in his left side, and received an MRI on Tuesday.
The treatment for the blood clot was the reliever’s “complication” that doctors revealed they encountered when examining Mariano Rivera on Monday, WFAN’s Sweeny Murti reported.
You couldn’t think of a worse way for a Hall of Fame career to potentially end. Yankees fans could only hope Rivera’s torn ACL won’t force him to limp into retirement.
An MRI discovered Ballard’s injury, and with the help of crutches, he was able to participate in Tuesday’s parade and ceremonies.
Two years. Two torn ACLs. One knee. The news shocked the Giants and their fans, but Domenik Hixon says it’ll just be part of his comeback story.
Dominik Hixon’s circus catch to close the first half of Monday night’s win over the Rams was one for the all-time highlight reel. But it will cost him — and the Giants — dearly.
Clint Sintim, Terrell Thomas, Prince Amukamara, Brian Witherspoon, Marvin Austin and Bruce Johnson. All lost for part of 2011 — or in some cases, the entire Giants season. Add Jonathan Goff to the list.
If there is a season, count Chad Pennington out. Rehabbing from shoulder and knee injuries, the former Jets quarterback won’t suit up this year. He’ll instead take a seat in upstairs in the television booth.
