New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes took a shot to the ribs during a scrimmage Saturday night, but a team spokesman said X-rays indicated that nothing was broken. Holmes’ status is day to day, NFL Network reported late Saturday night. After the injury occurred, coach Rex Ryan said the injury didn’t look good. “I don’t know if Santonio broke a rib or not, but the fact that it was sticking out was probably an indicator,” Ryan said. Ryan didn’t expect Holmes to be back on the field for at least a few days. The Jets don't practice Sunday. “He’s a tough guy, but I don’t think he’s going to be running out there tomorrow or the next day,” Ryan said. If Holmes misses significant time, it would be a blow to a Jets offense that isn’t blessed with a multitude of playmakers. That fact was evident during the scrimmage. "That’s tough," linebacker Aaron Maybin said. " We definitely have had some injury problems at that position." Quarterback Tim Tebow
