Per ESPN: Santonio Holmes, still rehabbing his surgically repaired foot, will be on a limited program throughout the spring and summer, meaning he could miss part of training camp. The objective, according to Rex Ryan, is to make sure the veteran wide receiver is ready for the season opener.
The main thing is, I just hope he’s ready for opening day,” Ryan told reporters Tuesday at the league meetings in Phoenix. “That’s going to be the goal. … I’ll lean on [trainer] John Mellody and have all the confidence in the world that he’ll get him right.”
Ryan said its “certainly a possibility” that Holmes will be limited in training camp. It sounds like they will use the LaRon Landry Plan. Landry, coming off an injury-plagued season with the Redskins, was monitored closely in camp and placed on a scaled-back practice regimen. It worked; he didn’t miss any regular-season games.
JordanWell this is what we need. Someone like Holmes having never played in a West Coast offense being limited in camp. Still, at this point right now Holmes is our best WR. Besides having never played in a West Coast system, he might have someone other than Sanchez throwing him the ball. If in fact Holmes does miss time, expect him to be raw and have chemistry issues if Sanchez isn’t the QB.
Update: Ryan announced that RBs coach Anthony Lynn has been named assistant head coach/offense.
