    Report: Some in Jets organization think Holmes "milking" foot injury to avoid camp

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/jets/...gNl1tcfDl7INkK

    Santonio Holmes says he is not any closer to playing, and patience is wearing thin around the Jets.

    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.

    Holmes claims he cannot run routes yet and will not give any timetable for his return. It has been 11 months since Holmes suffered a Lisfranc injury in his left foot that required two surgeries. Holmes said he still feels pain in the foot every day when he wakes up.

    Holmes, seen here working out prior to last Saturday's preseason game, says he is still unsure of when he will return to football activities.“I can’t pinpoint a day when it will feel better because every day has been the same up until this point,” Holmes said. “I feel good some days. I don’t the others. This pain won’t go away. It’s something I can’t predict because I have to get up and I have to run. I have to cut. I have to put pressure on it and apply as much pressure as I can to run routes and to feel comfortable.”

    There is a theory around the Jets that Holmes will suddenly pronounce himself ready to play when the regular season arrives in two weeks and training camp is through. Holmes also missed most of last year’s training camp with what was listed as “general body soreness” and then a rib injury.

    Others inside the Jets think Holmes could wait to see how the team starts the season before deciding when to play. If the team is losing, he may wait a while. If things are going well, he will join the party.

    Officially, the Jets have said Holmes has not been cleared by the doctors.

    “He seems excited,” coach Rex Ryan said. “I think that’s a good sign. Again, he’s going to lean on the trainers. We’re all going to lean on the trainers and the doctors. When they say he’s ready to go, he’ll be champing at the bit. I can tell you that right now. He’s in great shape.”

    Holmes did some running on the field before last weekend’s preseason game with the Jaguars, which made some speculate he was close to returning. Holmes downplayed that idea.

    “What you seen on Saturday at the game wasn’t anything in particular extra,” Holmes said. “It was just giving it a try and seeing what I can do.”

    The Jets open the season against the Buccaneers on Sept. 8. Holmes said he does not think it’s unrealistic he will be able to play then. Asked if he is holding out hope to be on the field that day, Holmes said, “Why would I hold out anything? If I can go, I will go. If I can’t, I can’t.”

    It has been 11 months since Holmes suffered the injury in Week against the 49ers. By comparison, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew suffered a Lisfranc injury a month after Holmes and has been participating in training camp. He returned to the field last week against the Jets, something members of the organization took note of.

    Holmes’ status is like a guessing game around the Jets. While some wonder if he’ll be back in two weeks, others think it could be October.

    General manager John Idzik said he was hopeful Holmes is close to returning this week and Ryan has repeatedly praised Holmes’ work rehabbing from the injury.

    Holmes seems to be tempering any optimism though and had an interesting response when told Ryan said he looks like he’s in great shape.

    “Looks can be deceiving,” Holmes said. “I say that with a smile because if I actually felt as good as I look, I’d definitely be 100 percent ready.”

    At the moment, Holmes said he is unable to “be at Santonio Holmes’ level of competition.” He won’t even commit to returning this season.

    “I don’t know how to answer that question as far as missing the whole season,” he said. “We have 16 weeks of football. At any point, I could be ready to play and if not I’d be willing to accept it.“

    These unnamed sources have no credibility.

    Stephen Hill, a guy who's around Holmes, said that he's (Holmes) itching to get back on the field.

    I trust Hill more than these so called sources.

    I can't stand these unnamed stories. I stopped believing any of this stuff unless there's a name.

    That's another thing I was right about that got me bashed on here. If Pittsburgh believed Holmes could hurt them in any significant way, there is no way they trade him to a, at the time, potential playoff conference rival for only a 5th round pick. Pittsburgh knew he was trouble when they traded him and showed him the door.

    Look at his stats fellas...

    He's been in the league since 2006, and had only 1 really good season which came in 2009. Pitt knew this guy was a headcase which is why he came so cheap. Love the athlete, hate the person scenario. All he is remembered for is that clutch catch that he made in the super bowl. If he swindles us it makes him look bad so good luck finding a job next season you cancer.

    Not going to get too worked up about this but Holmes is probably my least favorite jet of all time.
