• Jets place CB Revis on IR: There will be no dramatic Super Bowl return for Darrelle Revis. The New York Jets placed the star cornerback on season-ending injured reserve on Friday, a few weeks after coach Rex Ryan said the team would wait until after knee surgery in case there was a “0.0002 chance" Revis could recover in time to play in the NFL’s big game. “We’re going to need that roster spot," Ryan said. “I said it was a 0.0002 percent chance. Well, it’s not that high." 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. With safety Eric Smith being sidelined by a knee injury this week, Revis’ roster spot was filled by rookie safety Antonio Allen, the team’s seventh-round draft pick who was signed from the practice squad.
