Holmes has been cleared by team doctors to practice and has passed his physical.
“Nothing has been determined yet whether Geno will play in this game or not,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said Thursday. “Let’s make sure we’re clear on that.”
Holmes isn’t likely to say he can run until he is doing sprinting T-drills, cutting and running the distance of the field at full speed. In other words, when he can do what he used to do.
WFAN co-hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton got into it a little bit after watching a fan’s video of Holmes running — or was he jogging?
Move over, rookie. Mark Sanchez has a “slight” lead over Geno Smith in the Jets’ quarterback competition, according to Metro New York.
Rex Ryan has moved on from last season. He hopes New York Jets fans can, too.
Mark Sanchez insists he’s focused only on his own progress, and so far, likes what he’s doing for the New York Jets in training camp.
There’s no talk about shirtless jogs through the rain after practice, perhaps the defining moment of Tebow’s tenure with the Jets. There are also no secret plans for the wildcat offense, or when Tebow will supplant Mark Sanchez as the starter.
The New York Jets have suspended training camp practice because of severe storms. It will resume at 3:30 p.m.
Who is gone? Who has arrived? Who is primed for a breakout season? Who might be on the chopping block? We’ll tackle all of that starting…NOW!
Coach Rex Ryan said in a statement after media availability Thursday that the team knew Goodson wasn’t going to report to camp on time and “we understand why he’s not here.”
The real stuff starts when the team practices for the first time Friday, with all eyes on the two guys under center as the Jets try to decide on a starter.
Edwards took a physical with the team Wednesday, and will help add depth to a receiving corps that lacks experience.
The Jets placed the wide receiver on the active-physically unable to perform list Tuesday, an expected move as Holmes recovers from a serious foot injury that ended his season last year after four games.
Hall of Fame defensive end Howie Long has plenty of good things to say about Tim Tebow. But he’s not sure the Jets backup quarterback’s positives are enough to outweigh all that comes with Tebow-mania.
