Santonio Holmes practicing again


New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes wide receiver has missed the last five games of the season with a hamstring injury. Holmes is expected to be returning to the line up against the Buffalo Bills following the bye week, and is practicing on Wednesday.

“I think he’ll play,” coach Rex Ryan said, via ESPN. “He looks good to me. I certainly hope so.”

Holmes hinted earlier that he could return following the bye week.

“At this point, I think the bye week is coming at a great time,” Holmes said, via the Newark Star-Ledger. “It will give me five, maybe six weeks to get healthy and I should be ready to roll.”

Holmes has been especially cautious after missing almost the entire 2012 season.

“That’s one thing I don’t want, any setbacks at this point,” Holmes said. “I already missed a full season last year (with a foot fracture) and I want to be back on the team to help these guys as much as possible. I think I would be a downside to the team if I put myself back on that list of being injured for the remainder of the season.”
