BREAKING: Santonio Holmes Put on the PUP List to Start New York Jets Camp

Well, most of us saw this coming, but it was made official today.

We are now officially delayed in seeing the return of our number one wide receiver, Santonio Holmes. Per the NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport, Holmes has been placed on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform List) to start training camp.

The preseason PUP list does not affect the regular season.  Once Holmes is ready to pass his physical, he can come off of the list.  The difference comes if he isn’t ready to start the season.  The PUP list for the regular season would force Santonio to miss the first six games of the year.

Holmes is not the only one starting camp on the PUP list.  Here are the rest of the players beginning camp on the list: Junior Aumavae (NT) Rontez Miles (FS) Mike Edwards (CB) Darrin Walls (CB) Jake McDonough (DE)

I guess there will be plenty of players starting on, what Mike Westhoff used to call, the Tour de France.

    This is terrible news. I know this was a serious injury, but he was projected to be ready by camp. The Jets might need to trade for a WR and fast! Holmes might be done!! Though I never was a Holmes fan, he was the best WR on this team going into camp. Even if he passes a physical before the regular season, he’ll have a ton of rust about his game. He missed almost all of last season and OTA’s, now camp. The Jets have to be wondering how long it will take to bring his game around. Holme’s days as a Jet might have grown shorter. Here’s hoping he can make it back before the end of camp!!

      We can only hope that happens Paul. Like I said, he can come off quickly if it’s during camp, but it reaches the season we will be without Mr. Holmes for a long time.
