According to a New York Post article, some within the Jets organization believe that Santonio Holmes is milking his foot injury in order to miss training camp.
An organizational source said many people around the team believe the mercurial wide receiver is just trying to avoid training camp and he is healthier than he is letting on. In fact, a source said Dr. Robert Anderson, the foot specialist in North Carolina who operated on Holmes, has cleared Holmes to begin football activities, but Holmes has resisted.-New York Post August 22nd
A receiver that doesn’t want to practice with his teammates is not what the Jet’s need right now. As one of the more talented players on that offense the Jets would love for Holmes to step up as a leader. With a battle at QB the offense is in serious limbo and can’t afford anymore adversity than they are already experiencing.
