Kansas City Chiefs corner Darrelle Revis played just one half against the New York Jets, his former team, on Sunday. Before the 36 snaps on Sunday, Revis hadn’t played at all this season.
It’s tough to say if the Chiefs gave the player very limited action due to a previously established plan and strict snap count, or if they just weren’t impressed with his play after a couple of missed tackles.
So, how will the Chiefs use the player in the matchup against the Raiders on Sunday?
“I’m just going to see how it plays out,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “We’ll see how he does today and we’ll go from there. Right now with him it’s just getting him back in the swing, day to day and communicating with him. He’s a veteran player, and he’s a good communicator so we’ll just talk with him as we go forward here.”
Of course, the Chiefs aren’t required to commit to any specific plan. Much depends on how Revis performs and if he can muster a high-enough level of play to actually impact the game. It’s clear the Chiefs aren’t very sure how they’ll continue to use Revis, but for a coach trying to keep so much balanced, it’s probably wise not to nail something irremovably down.
