NFL Injury Report:
The New York Jets receiving corps is relatively young and
inexperienced. This fact is only made more evident when you subtract Santonio
Holmes from the equation. Unfortunately for the Jets, it appears they’ll have
to do just that through the start of training camp, perhaps even into the start
of the regular season, according to Seth Walder of The New York Daily News.
At this point, Holmes isn’t willing to put a timeframe on
his return. It looks increasingly doubtful that he’ll be participating in training
camp anytime soon, and his status is very questionable for New York’s Week 1
contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“I don’t have a target date,” said Holmes at uSTADIUM’s
Flags for Foundations flag football tournament on Roosevelt Island Saturday. “I
don’t want to do anything to jeopardize myself being ready for the season.”
Walder notes that it doesn’t sound like Holmes has done
anything close to running fly routes at full speed. The veteran wide out
continues to run on a non-weight bearing treadmill roughly three times per
week. He’s also participated minimally in football-related activities.
“It’s just getting back into the swing of walking and
running without any pains from having scar tissue build up around the injury,”
said Holmes. “It’s really difficult to learn how to walk again. To do so much
balance work, you don’t realize what you have until it’s gone. To lose a
ligament and have separation in your joints, have screws placed in.”
Holmes continued to say that he has no plans on rushing
himself back from his Lisfranc injury, as he wants to ensure that he is fully
ready to return when that happens. At this point, it’s hard to say exactly when
that will be.

Santonio Holmes, who missed most of last season with a foot injury, still is uncertain when he will be able to return to the field.
Holmes in an interview earlier this week declared himself day-to-day. Holmes said he does not want to put himself in a position to re-injure his foot, and will be very cautious upon his return.

Members of the New York Jets have varying levels of importance when it comes to the team’s success this upcoming season. The Jets could be ok if Dee Milliner doesn’t play lights out from Day 1 because they had a highly ranked pass defense with Kyle Wilson playing corner opposite Antonio Cromartie. If David Harris doesn’t bounce back from a subpar 2012 it will hurt less if Mo...
When the Jets signed free agent tight end and former Brown’s first round pick Kellen Winslow Jr., the fan base had a mixed reaction of excitement and skepticism. Most of the excitement stemmed from the lack of adding anyone remotely talented at the tight end position and the skepticism was due to Winslow Jr. barely playing in the NFL last season. The main concern with Winslow is...
When Santonio Holmes says he’s day to day, he’s not kidding.
The Jets wide receiver, who missed a majority of last season with a foot injury, does not have a timetable for his return.
"I don’t have a target date," Holmes said yesterday at a uStadium Flag Football charity event on Roosevelt Island. "I’m just stating the facts that the season starts soon and...
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that the Jets are working out both Austin Collie and Laurent Robinson. Collie was once a promising young receiver in Indianapolis but his career derailed after he received numerous concussions in a short period of time. Robinson flourished with the Cowboys in 2011 but fell off last season with the Jaguars and fell onto the IR in November...
As much as Jets fans would like to see Geno Smith be their week one starter this season, Mark Sanchez will likely win the job, according to the New York Daily News.
Smith thrived with quick, short passes in college — one of the staples in Mornhinweg’s offense, too — but it’s unlikely that the rookie will be ready to be the Week 1 starter. He’s still working...

It looks like it will be another year of watching Mark Sanchez under center in the Meadowlands.
Sanchez has a “firm grip” on the starting role at quarterback, according to Don Banks of Sports Illustrated. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News confirms Banks’ report, saying it’s unlikely rookie Geno Smith will be starting Week 1, but that he’ll get a chance to play if...
Getting drafted by the Jets is a blessing and a curse for Geno Smith. After sitting through the entire first night of the draft and thinking about skipping day two, Smith landed in a situation where the starting quarterback gig is there for the taking.The flip-side of all of that is it’s for a team that can’t get its act together. Case in point, the way they handled the Tim Tebow...

The quarterback competition between Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith is the most interesting storyline to follow from New York Jets training camp this summer. Most reporters have used words like “uninspiring” to describe Smith’s performance during practice since the Jets drafted him, and multiple reports have indicated Sanchez should be the starter come Week 1. [...]
Geno Smith apparently doesn’t think much of his competition for the Jets’ quarterback job this fall.
The brash rookie, who played at West Virginia, told a newspaper over the weekend he feels he has a “great shot” of unseating Mark Sanchez for the No. 1 job when their battle resumes this week in training camp.
“I’m prepared,’’ Smith told the Charleston (W. Va.) Gazette...
Mark Sanchez may or may not deserve most of the blame for his 2012 performance. We'll investigate. [NYDN]
Today, I'm going to the tape for Mark Sanchez and his 2012 performance. Numbers tell a lot, but they don't tell the whole story. I'll be focusing on bigger plays—TDs, INTs, fumbles, etc—but will also look into other plays as well.
I'll be going...
