TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Darrelle Revis is expected on the practice field when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers open training camp Thursday morning.
The three-time All-Pro cornerback, who is the centerpiece of an effort to overhaul the NFL's worst pass defense has been cleared medically to participate in some activities after missing most of last season with the New York Jets following surgery to repair a torn knee ligament.
The Bucs obtained Revis from the Jets in exchange for the 13th overall pick in the 2013 draft, then signed him to a six-year, $96 million contract.
Coach Greg Schiano said Wednesday that Revis "is going to do some stuff, but he isn't going to do everything," when practice begins on Thursday.
Revis reported to training camp Wednesday morning, along with every other Buccaneer on the roster. Except for the injured Bucs, every player passed the conditioning test... that consisted of 110-yard sprints, done 16 times, with 45-second breaks in between.
In roster moves, TE Luke Stocker and DE Markus White were placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list; P Michael Koenen was placed on the Non-Football Injury List, after cutting his foot last week; and RB Jeff Demps was placed on the Did Not Report list. Demps is competing in track and may join the team in late August.
