Holmes and Winslow Make Return To New York Jets, Will Play Against Bills

It has been reported by ESPN New York that New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes and tight end Kellen Winslow will make play against the Buffalo Bills.

With Jeremy Kerley going down with a dislocated elbow and tight end Jeff Cumberland still not back, the Jets have been hurting for playmakers on offense, so this is great news for the organization. Santonio Holmes, the Jets’ most explosive weapon, hasn’t played since Week 3; in that week, he smoked the Buffalo Bills secondary, posting a career-high 154 receiving yards, including a 69-yard, game-winning touchdown catch.

Rookie quarterback Geno Smith also gets his favorite target, Kellen Winslow, back. The tight end was targeted by Smith 17 times in four games before Winslow was suspended for a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

With both playmakers back, Geno and the Jets’ offense can have more of a balanced attack. Last week against the New Orleans Saints, the Jets took it out of Geno’s hands and concentrated more on the run — a gameplan that worked because it kept it out of Brees’ hands for most of the game.

The Jets, coming off a bye week, are rested and have some weapons back on offense. Can the team continue their momentum into the second half of their schedule and make the playoffs for the first time since 2010?
