Jets place WR Holmes on PUP list

The SportsXchange

Nearly 10 months after hurting his left foot, New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes still isn't ready to return to the field.

With the veteran recovering from two surgeries on the foot to deal with a Lisfranc injury, the Jets placed Holmes on the physically unable to perform list Tuesday.

Holmes, 29, could be activated from the PUP list at any point in training camp. If he lands on the regular-season PUP list, he'd be sidelined for a minimum of six games.

The Jets' season opener is Sept. 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and former New York cornerback Darrelle Revis. Jets training camp begins Friday in Cortland, N.Y.

"I don't have a target date (for a return)," Holmes said Saturday, according to the New York Daily News. "I don't want to do anything to jeopardize myself being ready for the season. ... It's just getting back into the swing of walking and running without any pains from having scar tissue build up around the injury."

In addition to Holmes, the Jets placed cornerback Mike Edwards, nose tackle Junior Aumavae, defensive back Rontez Miles and defensive end Jake McDonough on the PUP list. Cornerback Darrin Walls and wide receiver K.J. Stroud went on the non-football injury list.
