Holmes went through two surgeries this offseason in an effort to get him back on his feet and contribute for the Jets. They need him. Santonio Holmes' training camp is off to a rocky start. Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes‘ recovery from last season’s Lisfranc injury continues on the side while his teammates practice at training camp and it doesn’t sound like Holmes will be joining them on the field anytime soon. “I want to do what the foot says to do,” Holmes said. Holmes has been noncommittal about his timeline to return all along, but asked more specifically if he would return at some point this season, Holmes said, "I can't answer that question." "Making sure the feet move at the same pace," Holmes said, "and no setbacks in the future." One practice into training camp, and it was all going so well for the Jets. That would mean at least six games without Holmes in the lineup, which would leave the winner of the Jets quarterback competition with the kind of receiving corps that makes you wonder if the word winner is really the right word to use. At the same time, the Jets have tried to create as technically advanced a rehab environment in Cortland as they have in Florham Park, moving medical equipment including the team's low-gravity treadmill, which allows injured players to build muscle and endurance without full weight-bearing exercise.
