Report: Holmes has 'mini-meltdown' at Jets OTAs

Wide receiver Santonio Holmes had what referred to as a "mini-meltdown" during Thursday's OTA work.

Holmes spoke to receivers coach Sanjay Lal and with a trainer, apparently upset over having too many reps in the practice after limping off the field and throwing his helmet.

"I was talking to the coach, letting him understand it was too many reps today," Holmes said. "I've been gone for a while, so I can't be at full tempo like the rest of the guys and where they want us to be at."

Jets coach Rex Ryan said he had no problem with Holmes or any veteran asking out of a drill if he felt there was an injury risk.

"If he thinks he'd be stretching it to give five or 10 extra reps, you have to be smart about it," Ryan said, adding, "If a guy thinks he's tight ... you don't want a guy pulling (a muscle). He knows his body better than anybody."
