Jets | Limited Santonio Holmes for preservation
Mon, 02 Dec 2013 17:53:18 -0800
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said Monday, Dec. 2, that the team limited WR Santonio Holmes (hamstring) to two snaps in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins to help keep him healthy the rest of the year. "We thought he was going to play a little more than that," Ryan said. "We noticed as the coaches that the burst wasn't quite there. Instead of him possibly having a setback, we were only to play him in what we said was a must situation. We can't afford him to take a step back, lose him for the rest of the year. We need him going forward."
Fantasy owners will want to steer far clear of this situation, especially at a critical juncture of the season for owners. He is limited, and is likely to be limited going forward. And when he has been healthy, he hasn't done a whole lot and his quarterback situation is a mess.
