• Cromartie, Holmes, Kerley up in air

    Summary of 10 articles · Updated Dec 3, 2013
    Both Kerley and Holmes are listed as questionable for Miami and while Holmes didn’t practice he was optimistic about his status for the game. The Jets have a number of key players who will be game-time decisions, Rex Ryan announced Friday, including WR Santonio Holmes , CB Antonio Cromartie and WR Jeremy Kerley . Kerley has been out the past two games with a dislocated elbow while Holmes has had a series of injuries this year returning from his Lisfranc injury last year. So, too, was Cromartie, who aggravated an old hip injury last Sunday and missed practice Wednesday and Thursday. Holmes, for his part, responds that he feels good whether he is inactive, practicing or able to play. Of all the head-scratching decisions that the Jets’ regime has made over the years, activating Santonio Holmes as a gametime decision, putting him in the starting lineup and then only using him on one other play all game has to be one of the most bewildering. If that’s not the case, then it’s not like any of the other receivers had earned extra reps, so there is no obvious explanation other than the fact that he’s not really part of their plans, in which case, why start him? Why even continue to have him on the team?
