The NFL has had a few injuries to star players this season. Perhaps none have been as big as the one announced today. New York Jets superstar cornerback Darrelle Revis is out for the season after tearing his ACL in a win over the Dolphins Sunday.

The injury occurred on the grass field surface when Revis attempted to get into position to make a tackle. It was a non-contact play for Revis, who will no longer have football contact this year.

As a three-time All-Pro selection, Revis is widely regarded as the best defensive back in the NFL. He is always assigned to cover the opponents’ No. 1 wide receiver, and rarely allows a catch, must less give up a big play. He allowed a single touchdown last season. Darrelle’s coverage skills allow New York to engage heavy blitz schemes, leaving him on an island. His ability to play well in isolation earned him the nickname “Revis Island.”

Jets’ head coach Rex Ryan announced the injury earlier today at a press conference. When asked whether or not he’s down about the injury, Ryan was insistently positive.

“Never happens,” he explained. “We have enough to get it done here.”

We’ll see what he says after coaching a few games without his superstar cornerback.
