Jets' Revis sits out practice with hamstring injury

The SportsXchange

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis missed most of Sunday's practice with what he described as "a little tightness" in his right hamstring, but he denied his absence had anything to with his unhappiness with his contract.

"I knew you were going to ask that question," he told a reporter, shaking his head, according to ESPNNewYork.com. "Come on, it has nothing to do with it. If I didn't want to be here, I would've held out."

Two years ago, when he was unhappy with his contract, Revis pulled out of a few drills with a tight hamstring and lightheadedness.

In that case, he admitted he was trying to send a message, and it led to a 35-day holdout in training camp.

Revis said Sunday that his latest hamstring injury is minor and that he expects to practice on Monday.

Revis would have been fined $30,000 a day if he has held out this season. Plus he would have sacrificed a $1 million reporting bonus.
