This leaping, preseason grab didn’t count since Odell Beckham Jr. landed out of bounds, but it may be all we get to see of Giants receiver against Darrelle Revis since Jet corner may sit Sunday.
The highly-anticipated Odell Beckham Jr. vs. Darrelle Revis showdown is in question.
Jets head coach Todd Bowles said Monday that Revis still is in the concussion protocol and has made only “slight progress.” He wasn’t sure if Revis had done any physical activity on Monday.
Revis suffered the concussion during the Jets’ loss to the Texans and did not play in his team’s win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
If Revis can’t go against the Giants, that would rob everyone a chance to see an unbelievable receiver like Beckham go against one of the best cornerbacks of all time in Revis. Should Revis miss the contest, the task of covering Beckham may fall to Antonio Cromartie, who called the young Giants receiver a “one-year wonder” in October.
On Monday, Cromartie elaborated on that — he wasn’t really critical of Beckham, but instead simply suggested that the receiver could still improve based on his youth.
“Honestly, I haven’t watched him at all (this year),” Cromartie said at first, before elaborating. “Overall, I mean, I still feel like there’s so much room for him to grow. He’s a young, athletic guy who can go out and make plays and make unbelievable catches. And he’s proven that over and over. . . he does have room to grow because he’s so young.”
If Beckham got any better, it might get scary: the second-year receiver has 72 receptions and over 1,000 yards this season. He made another insane catch on Sunday against Washington, though Cromartie said he hadn’t seen it yet.
MILESTONE FOR FITZ
Ryan Fitzpatrick remembered that Sunday’s game against the Dolphins was his 100th career start thanks to a text from his dad before the contest. It’s a mark that the veteran QB is quite proud of.
“That was cool for me,” Fitzpatrick said Monday. “That was (a) neat thing that when my career is over with, I wanted to keep the ball at the end of game and throw that one in the trophy case, because being a seventh-round pick, being a guy that wasn’t really recruited to play college football, I’d say it’s been a pretty cool ride.”
Cornerback Marcus Williams has an MCL sprain and is day-to-day, Bowles said. Williams started in place of Revis on Sunday, and suffered the injury on his run back after an interception. Bowles said it is possible Williams could play against the Giants.
Linebacker Calvin Pace is also day-to-day with his abdominal strain.
