Manish Mehta, Twitter - [Full Article]

Jets beat writer Manish Mehta with a series of tweets about WR Santonio Holmes:

From what I'm seeing... don't be surprised if Santonio Holmes plays in Jets season opener vs Bucs on Sept. 8.

This is by far the most I've seen Santonio Holmes do since the start of camp. Looks like tonight was an important step in his return.

Santonio Holmes looks impressive. Just made a great over the shoulder 40-yard grab from Geno (running about 3/4 speed).

Santonio Holmes just wrapped up about a 20-min catching session w/Geno Smith. Looked good running routes (about 3/4 speed). Very good.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is the first positive report we've heard about Holmes in weeks. He's worth a late-round pick as a WR5 with possible WR3 upside.
