New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes has been moved from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform List to the Active Roster. This is great news for a Jets team lacking receiver depth, and with the regular season now just two weeks away, this gives the team hope that Holmes will be able to contribute sooner rather than later after it appeared his season was in doubt.

Holmes, who suffered a Lisfranc injury to his foot against the San Francisco 49ers last September, has been rehabbing and working with our medical and training staffs to return to action.

Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that everyone is excited to have him back:

“We’re all going to lean on the trainers and doctors, and when they say he’s ready to go, he’ll be chomping at the bit, I can tell you that right now,” Ryan said. “He’s excited. I think he’s in great shape. Hopefully he can get on the field soon.”


 ”I can’t pinpoint a day when it will feel better because every day has been the same up until this point,” Holmes said Wednesday, per the New York Post. “I feel good some days. I don’t the others. This pain won’t go away.”
