Darrelle Revis sent home by Bill Belichick for being late
Darrelle Revis did not practice with the New England Patriots on Tuesday, and a report says that is because he was sent home for being late to the team facility in the morning.
According to Ben Volin of The Boston Globe, the Patriots were given Saturday-Monday off following Thursday night’s win over the New York Jets. Players were supposed to be at the facility at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, but Revis arrived late and was sent home for the day.

Though Revis was sent home on Tuesday, he was back at practice on Wednesday.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick tries to make a point that regardless of talent level, the rules apply to all players equally. Sending Revis — one of the top cornerbacks in the league — home for being late sends the message to the entire team that the superstars do not get special treatment.
