"We don't want to push it to where it's a problem where I have to keep on coming out of the game or I can't practice. Right now we're just going to take our time with it until I feel it's at 100 percent," Revis told reporters Monday.
Revis, the AFC defensive player of the year in 2009, specializes in going one-on-one with receivers and his absence would be a blow against the 2-0 Dolphins.
"We're not going to force a guy out to play. But it's a big game and a lot of different variables go into that decision. At the end of the day if you just do what's in the best interest of the player, that's the best thing," he added.
Revis, who missed training camp while holding out for a new four-year deal with the Jets, suffered the injury during Sunday's win over the New England Patriots and he said it was too early to make a judgment on his chances of playing.
"If I can play Sunday, I will be out there on Sunday," he said. "If I'm doubtful, I'm doubtful. If I can't, then I won't be out there. This week we'll test it out and see where I am, and I'll probably give you a percentage later on in the week."
