All Indications Are Santonio Holmes Will Play Sunday

Holmes_2013The Jets finally announced that Geno Smith will be at quarterback against the Buccaneers and it looks like hell have Santonio Holmes available to target with his passes.

Brian Costello of the New York Post reports that all indications are that Holmes will be in the lineup for the Jets in Week One. While the expectation internally is that Holmes will be on the field, there may be a cap on how many snaps Holmes will play after spending all of camp and preseason doing limited work as he made his way back from Lisfranc surgery. Holmes offered no hint about whats in the works on Wednesday.

I still dont know, Holmes said. Still havent gotten any word from the doctors yet on whether I should be playing or not, so Im just going to keep playing it by ear.

It may wind up being a game-time decision for the Jets, but Holmes return to practice and the upward trend in positive reports about his condition do suggest that he wont wind up missing the entire season. That wont fix all that ails the Jets offense, but having Holmes is certainly better than the alternative.
