The play of Darrelle Revis is far from the top of the list when breaking down the factors behind the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 0-5 start.

Still there has been some hand-wringing about how the star cornerback has been deployed -- a mix of man and zone coverage not previously seen on Revis Island.

According to one longtime former star of the Bucs' secondary Revis -- now one year removed from reconstructive knee surgery -- isn't fully healthy.

"I don't think that knee is back to where it was yet but he still has been playing well" Ronde Barber told The Tampa Tribune via text message. "Probably not where he wants but it's not like he's a liability."
