FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis said Monday that he feels 100 percent, a day after guarding the Packers top wide receiver Greg Jennings for most of the second half of the Jets 9-0 loss.
Revis had been bothered by a strained hamstring since a win over the Patriots in the second week of the season.
"I feel 100 percent and I'm good," Revis said.
He said he and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers were looking at each other during the game, and Revis knew he was trying to test how healthy he was by throwing to his part of the field.
"It was a smile or a nod and I knew he was going to come to my side," Revis said.
Against the Packers, Revis played the left side of a zone with Antonio Cromartie on the right. Lined up against Cromartie, Jennings had three first half catches for 48 yards. Two of Jennings' second half catches were when Revis was not assigned the wide receiver.
After the game Rodgers said Revis looked 100 percent to him.
The bye week was a good opportunity for Revis to rest the hamstring, which was visibly bothering him when the Jets played the Minnesota Vikings two weeks before the bye. Jets coach Rex Ryan took Revis to Denver, and he played a reduced role there.
Revis was held out of training camp while negotiating a new contract and first hurt the hamstring in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens. It didn't become an official strain until he played the following week.
