Coach Rex Ryan said Friday that Holmes has been ruled out for the game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Holmes, who did not practice, was injured in the Jets’ loss at Tennessee in Week 4.
A rib injury did not stop center Nick Mangold for being active for the Jets on Sunday.
Wide receiver Santonio Holmes will not be suiting up for the Jets this weekend. His return date is uncertain.
Holmes grew irritated with reporters Thursday, particularly for their follow-up questions to an answer about the upcoming bye week. “Don’t put words in my mouth,” he said.

Jets center Nick Mangold returned to the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after leaving due to an apparent arm injury.
“I moved on from those experiences I had,” Revis said. “I had a great six years there. Now I’ve just got to move on. I’ve got a new start ahead of me, with a new team and I’m excited to be a Buccaneer.”
Mark Sanchez has center Nick Mangold in his corner. And Mangold believes the rest of the Jets are with him.
“No, I don’t think they needed a quarterback,” Namath said. “They needed the other positions filled. Possibly offensive line. They got some defensive line. The safeties are still questionable. The outside linebackers are still questionable.”
Mark Sanchez spoke for more than 20 minutes about the New York Jets’ crowded quarterback situation, saying all the right things throughout. Yes, he believes he’ll be the starter, and yes, he looks forward to the competition.
If Revis decides after next year that he wants another big payday, then the Jets will be left with no Revis and no compensation were he to depart via free agency.
Tannenbaum delivered a farewell address on Monday to the group of men he signed, traded for or drafted over the last seven years as the team’s GM. And he choked back tears as he read it.
In an otherwise forgettable season, the Jets did get some good news on Wednesday as it was learned that two of the members of their secondary were named to the Pro Bowl.
