FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee that will require surgery, likely meaning he'll miss the rest of the season. Revis was injured in the third quarter of the Jets' 23-20 overtime victory at Miami, falling awkwardly and grabbing at his knee even before hitting the grass. It was a non-contact injury, and he wound up covering his face with gloved hands in obvious pain. "Certainly, it's a big disappointment," head coach Rex Ryan said. "I know the way Darrelle is, that this is a guy who's as competitive as it gets, and I don't think there's any doubt that he's going to come back strong from it." It was Revis' first game back after missing a week with a concussion suffered in the season opener against Buffalo. AP wire services contributed to this report.
