Florham Park, NJ (Sports Network) - New York Jets wide receiver Santonio
Holmes is listed as questionable for Sunday's opener against the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers due a lingering foot injury.
Holmes suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury to his left foot last
September against the San Francisco 49ers and is still working his way
towards a full recovery.
Holmes, who did not practice Thursday, was a limited participant on Wednesday
and Friday. He was inactive for all four of the Jets' preseason games.
Since coming over to the Jets in 2010, Holmes has amassed 123 receptions for
1,672 yards and 15 touchdowns over 32 games.
In addition, defensive end Quinton Coples (ankle) has been ruled out and
defensive tackle (back) Kenrick Ellis is questionable.
The Jets had already ruled out quarterback Mark Sanchez, who hurt his throwing
shoulder in a preseason game against the Giants on Aug. 24, earlier in the
week. Rookie Geno Smith will make his first career start under center in
