Bucs GM Mark Dominik told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio the club is considering playing Darrelle Revis (knee) in their third preseason game.
"That would be three weeks ahead of schedule," Sal Pal reported. The Bucs initially intended to hold Revis out of game action until Week 1, so the expedited plan would indicate better-than-anticipated recovery. Revis progressed to 7-on-7 practice drills this week. He could graduate to 11-on-11s soon, and run with the starters in the all-important third exhibition. NFL teams treat the third preseason game like a regular season tuneup, often letting starters play more than a half.
