Following concerns that his hamstring injury might hold him back from playing against the NFL’s second-best passing offense on Sunday, Darrelle Revis was limited to individual training on Wednesday but was feeling better. "The swelling went down a lot.

The Broncos have dominated the recent series with the Jets, having won the last two meetings. Two years ago, Denver beat New York 34-17 at the Meadowlands.

The Broncos are near the bottom third of the league in rushing attempts, toting the ball just 114 times this season.
