New York Jets WR Santonio Holmes is recovering from surgery to repair a severe Lisfranc fracture in his foot.
“I don’t have a target date,” Holmes said at a flag football tournament in New York, according to the New York Daily News. “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,” said Holmes, who is an obvious candidate to begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list. “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.”
I don’t know how much Holmes will be able to contribute when he gets back onto the field. He is recovering from a major surgery and is 29 years old. He will need to have an Adrian Peterson type return to glory. He has a lot of work to do.
