Jets | Santonio Holmes talks about injury

New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes (foot) spoke to the media recently, shedding light on his Lisfranc foot injury. Holmes said his foot injury was diagnosed as a Grade 4 injury (the most serious kind), meaning a muscle tear and joint separation in his mid-foot. He had screws and a plate removed in a March surgical procedure, but he will have two screws in the foot permanently. Holmes said his "target date" is the first day of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Holmes has yet to start running and cutting, and he is a huge question mark. It's even more worrisome since Stephen Hill, likely the leading candidate to start opposite Holmes, is dealing with more drop problems during offseason practices. Holmes might be a tremendous late-round pick-up for fantasy owners on draft day, and if he flames out or underproduces, no harm and no foul.
