Found August 29, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
PLAYERS: Santonio Holmes
TEAMS: New York Jets
New York Jets wide receiver, Santonio Holmes, is rehabbing a Lisfranc injury he suffered in 2012.  Coach Holmes still has not decided when and if he will return.  This is what happens when you let a player as lazy as a nurse shark dictate when he can come back on the field. Josh Alper of NBCSports reports that even though Holmes is practicing and running routes (at half speed) and been added to the active roster, Holmes has yet to put a timetable on his return.  Holmes in a statement made through the team stated, “I have a long career ahead of me, so I’m going to take the best risk and the best chances for myself and for the team.” I think it is very important to note that Holmes said “myself” first and “team” second.  There is no “I” in team, but there is a “me.”  Holmes is a “me” type player.  Always has been and always will be.  More so in this case, what is best for Holmes might not coincide with what is best for the Jets. Let us be real here folks.  What is going on here is that Holmes is a realist.  He knows the Jets are not going to the playoffs this year and he knows that the Jets do not even know who will be the quarterback from one game to the next.  Therefore, Holmes has an out.  He hangs his hard hat on the Lisfranc injury tree and he sits under it waiting for the proper time to make his move.  The Jets know what he is doing and they purchased a ticket on this drama train when Holmes put on a green uniform. I am not sure what is worse, a “me” type player or a team who knows it has one and keeps the “me” and ditches the “we.”     You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69 Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?

Joe Namath Says Relationship With Jets Is Clumsy, Awkward
