Santonio Holmes, who missed two straight practices before Sunday, might have done more jogging for trainers on the field than he did running in the game.
The New York Jets' medical staff cleared the wide receiver and he was active, but took part in just three first-half plays before appearing to sit out the rest of the 23-3 loss to the Dolphins.
“It was coach’s decision,” Holmes said. “(I had) limited plays coming off an injury. We wanted to monitor that and make sure everything is OK for the rest of the season.”
HC Rex Ryan said Monday that the team shut down Holmes because they didn't see the burst they normally do and didn't want him to suffer a setback. He didn't practice leading up to the game, but was activated before the game.
