FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets will make a decision on the availability of Darrelle Revis before the team travels to Pittsburgh on Saturday for their game against the Steelers.

Coach Rex Ryan says Thursday that the status of the star cornerback, who's recovering from a concussion, remains unchanged: Revis is cleared for physical activity, but not contact. The team will monitor Revis throughout the day, but Ryan says if Revis "is not 100 percent, he won't play. It's as simple as that."

Revis was injured Sunday in the season opener against Buffalo when teammate Bart Scott accidentally kicked him in the head.

Ryan says if Revis isn't cleared by Saturday, he won't fly to Pittsburgh with the team. Revis must be cleared by the team physician and an independent neurological consultant.
