EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Cornerback Darrelle Revis said he's "fine" after tweaking a hamstring, but there wasn't as much optimism surrounding a knee injury to right guard Willie Colon, who was replaced in the third quarter of the New York Jets' 24-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
Colon wasn't in the locker room during the media period, but he was seen later being driven out of the stadium on a golf cart -- always an ominous sign. Coach Todd Bowles provided no information on Colon's status.
Colon, who underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in 2014, suffers from a chronic knee issue. In fact, he was limited in practice last week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. It's unclear if he hurt his surgically repaired knee.
A long-term injury would be a blow to the offense. Colon, 32, is the senior member of the line, the vocal leader of the group. He brings an element of toughness to the team, an intangible that would be missed. He was replaced by Brian Winters, who has struggled in pass protection in past years. He allowed a pressure on Ryan Fitzpatrick's second interception, getting pushed backward by defensive end Brandon Bair, who deflected the pass at the line of scrimmage. Linebacker Jordan Hicks made the interception on the tip.
Revis, who entered the game with a strained groin, played all but the final series. That's when the hamstring flared up.
"I will be fine," he said.
