The good times keep on rollin’ when it comes to the New York Jets. The Jets’ No. 1 receiver, and only legitimate weapon, is still unsure of when he’ll be ready to come back from his Grade 4 LisFranc injury (the most severe) he suffered last season against the 49ers.
“The objective is to not have any setbacks by moving too fast,” said Santonio Holmes. “The season doesn’t start until September. Definitely have to take our time and I’ll be ready to go when the bell rings.”
Things aren’t looking to good for gang green, who already lack any offensive weapons, and it may hurt Mark Sanchez’s or Geno Smith’s chances of having opportunities to score. The team’s first game is in 50 days, and Holmes hasn’t started running or cutting at full speed. Most of Holmes’ running has been on the non-weight-bearing treadmill, and has participated in limited football activities.
Well, at least there hasn’t been any setbacks with his recovery. At this point, it’s all mental with Holmes, being that he hasn’t been able to even walk for close to a year.
So, Jets fans, don’t expect to see No. 10 catching passes from
Mark, er, Geno, er, any quarterback any time soon—which is unfortunate because the Jets desperately need their playmaker back.
