New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said that wide receiver Santonio Holmes might miss the rest of the preseason due to the rib injury he suffered about a week ago during practice.

“Santonio Holmes may miss the entire preseason. Rex Ryan said on Wednesday that the Jets’ No. 1 wide receiver may not be on the field again up the regular-season opener against the Bills on Sept. 9,” reported Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News.

“Certainly it’s possible,” Ryan said. “But don’t think that will be the case.”

“Obviously, you’d like to have your guys out there on the field…. ” Ryan said. “But you got make sure you’re not putting them out there when they could be at further risk or they’re not ready to come back.”

All the Jets need to do is put Tebow at receiver and they’ll be fine.
