Revis just 'day-to-day' with groin injury



TAMPA -- Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis did not practice Wednesday, but his prognosis for playing Sunday at Carolina is encouraging as Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano said he's "day-to-day."

"Revis will be day-to-day," said Schiano, whose team played without its top corner in the second half of Sunday's win at Detroit. "That should tell you ... it's not real bad. Will he play Sunday? I don't know. We've got to figure that out. That's why he's day-to-day."

Revis said he "tweaked" the injury late in the second quarter Sunday, which saw him lining up against Lions star receiver Calvin Johnson. Rookie Johnthan Banks filled in for him after the injury and held his own, and Schiano said the team is working on defensive game plans both with and without Revis.

"There are certain matchups we'll do with him. Will we do them without him? I don't know," Schiano said. "That's a decision we're going to have to make. You're going to have to have plenty of contingencies, because it could happen the first play of the game as well."

The Bucs did get linebacker Mason Foster back to practice after having him miss Sunday's game as he recovered from a concussion suffered in the previous game. Adam Hayward, who stepped in for Foster on Sunday, did not practice due to a lower leg injury.
