Issues between the New York Jets and cornerback Darrelle Revis are ongoing. The team is allegedly engaged in active trade talks with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and a recent report courtesy of Rich Cimini of ESPN New York suggests Gang Green is especially disappointed in Revis' decision to go outside of the organization for the surgery done to repair his torn ACL.
Rather than having doctors at Atlantic Health repair his ACL back in October, Revis went against the grain and reached out to New York Giants orthopedic surgeon Dr. Russell Warren to conduct the surgery.
"I have a great deal of confidence in our doctors and training staff. However, ultimately, these decisions are up to the preference of the player, and we respect Darrelle’s decision. We are all just focused on making sure he has the resources and support he needs for a successful recovery," Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum said in attempt to downplay the issue.
Given the recent string of repeat ACL tears by many Giants — Terrell Thomas, Brian Witherspoon, Domenik Hixon and Clint Sintim — many Giants fans are probably laughing at Revis' decision. And given that recent history, it's understandable that the Jets would be both concerned and upset. However, there's no indication that Giants team Doctors, or surgeon Dr. Russell Warren, did anything wrong during any of those surgeries/recovery.
It's also worth pointing out that although T2 had dual ACL tears (and three overall), Dr. Russell Warren did not conduct any of his repairs. The first two were done by Dr. Arthur Ting, with the third being done by Dr. James Andrews.
