Revis gives up TD, leaves with injuries
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- For the second week in a row, cornerback Darrelle Revis finished the game on the Bucs sideline, his immediate future unknown due to injuries to his shoulder and chest.
"I don't know much more," coach Greg Schiano said after the game when asked about Revis' condition. "He didn't return, as you saw."
Revis, who did not speak to reporters after the game, nearly had an interception on the first play of Carolina's second drive of the third quarter, but he couldn't hold onto the pass intended for Steve Smith and stayed down on the sideline. Trainers attended to him for a few minutes before he got up and walked off the field, with reserve Danny Gorrer replacing him in the lineup the rest of the way.
On the previous drive, Revis was beaten for a 36-yard touchdown, as Panthers receiver Ted Ginn made a stop-and-go double move, getting open behind Revis and catching the score for a 24-6 lead. Revis, who missed the second half of last week's game with a groin injury, was limited in practice but played and started Sunday, finishing with four tackles and one pass defensed.
"They'd been setting that play up the whole game. He was running curls," rookie cornerback Johnthan Banks said after the game. "You know how Rev plays. He ran a double move, and most corners, double moves are hard to cover. They ran a double move and he caught it."
