Darrelle Revis continues to show he's making progress toward the Bucs' goal of him being ready for Week 1 against the Jets.

There continues to be encouraging signs with Bucs star cornerback Darrelle Revis, who increased his workload in practice Wednesday for the third straight day.

Revis, who said he made a "huge step" Monday in working with first team for the full practice, did a little more on Wednesday, coach Greg Schiano said.

The fact that Revis has practiced three straight days, without a day off, is already a positive sign that his surgically-repaired left knee isn't swelling. But that Revis has continued to do more, whether it is in reps or intensity, shows he's making progress toward the Bucs goal of him being ready for Week 1 against the Jets, his former team.

"So far, so good," Schiano said. "Today he did more and looked impressieve. We just need to keep going."

Schiano said one reason Revis is getting better is because he's taking it day-by-day, and working "incredibly hard and smart." He said no decision has been made on whether the All Pro will play in Saturday's third exhibition game.

“I wouldn’t say it has been eliminated," Schiano said. "But again, I’ll just say that I don’t need to see it."
