The trainer for New York Jets star Darrelle Revis believes the cornerback could be ready to resume workouts following a torn ACL as soon as April.

Revis suffered the injury last September against the Pittsburgh Steelers and underwent surgery soon after.

"For me, I think I’m thumbs up in April, I’m going to get the green light (from Revis’ training staff) in April," trainer Will Sullivan told the Newark Star-Ledger.

"The great thing is, there’s been no setbacks, it’s been a great surgery, he’s doing the right things — he hasn’t done too much, he hasn’t done too little. He’s doing just enough to make sure he’s cooperating with the doctor and physical therapist.

"Once I get the green light in April, it’s time to go hit it hard on the field, so I have to make sure we hit it in a progressive manner. ... With him I have to start off with level one. It’s all about how he graduates from program to program."
