Santonio Holmes placed on physically unable to perform list

In a move that doesn't come as a surprise, the New York Jets have placed star wide receiver Santonio on the physically unable to perform list due to a foot injury.

Holmes is still recovering from a Lisfranc injury.

“I don’t have a target date,” Holmes told reporters Saturday . "I don’t want to do anything to jeopardize myself being ready for the season. It’s just getting back into the swing of walking and running without any pains from having scar tissue build up around the injury.

"It’s really difficult to learn how to walk again. To do so much balance work, you don’t realize what you have until it’s gone. To lose a ligament and have separation in your joints, have screws placed in."

What's important is that Holmes is ready for the regular season, not far less meaningful training camp practices.

So, this gives Holmes the time to concentrate on his recovery.

The Jets also placed the following players on the physically unable to perform list: nose guard Junior Aumavae, defensive end Jake McDonough, defensive back Rontez Miles and cornerback Mike Edwards.

Cornerback Darrin Walls was placed on the non-football injury list.
