Nearly a month after his foot waffled, it finally gave Jets WR Santonio Holmes the green light to run around before the Jets’ second preseason game on Saturday night. Holmes appeared sharp running routes at three-quarters speed and catching passes from fellow dinged-up teammate Geno Smith.
Holmes’ impending return will provide more than simply a jolt to a Jets offense that looked out of sorts at practice on Monday.
The Jets are hoping Holmes will be ready by Week 1, which is a big improvement over the expectations just a short time ago. There's no doubt the team needs Holmes in the passing game, but the story also points out that his presence will be an immense help for Geno Smith's development this season. Holmes is ranked 87th on our list and is well off fantasy radars right now.
