This was not news that the Jets fans wanted to hear with an already thin wide receiving corps for rookie Geno Smith’s first professional game. Holmes is one of the few options that Smith will have this season with prior substantial experience.
Mark Sanchez has also been officially ruled out for Sunday’s game which comes as no surprise after his shoulder injury during the preseason.
The Jets defense also suffered a hit as linebacker Quinton Coples will be inactive with an ankle injury.
Tight end Kellen Winslow and Antonio Cromartie are expected to play as they have been listed as probable on the injury report.
