Should the New York Jets Be Concerned Over Wide Receiver Santonio Holmes and His Foot Injury?
There are plenty of questions for the New York Jets heading into the 2013 season, but one of the main things the team may be most concerned about is the status of wide receiver Santonio Holmes. At first, it seemed like Holmes would be ready to go for the 2013 season, but now–there’s a chance the wideout could start off the season on the PUP list.
Unfortunately, Holmes was limited to playing in just four games for the Jets last season as he had Lisfranc surgery on his left foot and whether or not this team is capable of bouncing back next season could rely heavily on his shoulders. He may not be one of the league’s top wide receivers, but Holmes has proven to be effective when healthy as he’s capable of causing problems for just about any defender going against him.
Plus, New York ranked near the bottom of the league last season when it came to offense–so they could certainly use all of the weapons they have heading into next season.
As bad as it sounds, there are numerous things that need to fall into place for the Jets next season if Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez are going to be around beyond the 2013 season. This was a team that was considered a strong contender in the AFC not too long ago, but they’ve been on the decline over the last two seasons.
Holmes is clearly the No. 1 wide receiver on the Jets–so the team better hope this foot injury doesn’t carry over into the start of the regular season.
