Jets Could Place Holmes On PUP List

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – After missing 12 games last season with a Lisfranc injury in his foot, New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes might be missing a few more games this upcoming season, according to a report in the New York Daily News.

Holmes who was at the uSTADIUM’s Flags for Foundations flag football tournament on Saturday, told the Daily News, “I don’t have a target date, I don’t want to do anything to jeopardize myself being ready for the season.”

“It’s just getting back into the swing of walking and running without any pains from having scar tissue build up around the injury,” Holmes told the Daily News.

If Holmes is not ready to play when training camp opens, the Jets could place him on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

Whoever is under center in Week 1 for the Jets, they are probably hoping Holmes will ready to play as the Jets will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their new CB Darrelle Revis.
