Santonio Holmes has a reason for not practicing now

Last week, New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes was protesting being overworked.

It doesn’t appear he’ll have to make such a statement this week.

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan said Tuesday that Holmes would be limited in practice during this week’s minicamp with a hamstring problem.

There was no mention of an injury last week, when the enigmatic wideout “staged a mini-meltdown,” and exchanged words with an assistant coach.

Otherwise, there was a sense of normalcy at Jets camp, where Ryan decided to do interviews early (perhaps so everyone could concentrate on tracking second-team passing stats).

He also confirmed that Darrelle Revis was on hand (keeping him on track toward his goal of retiring as a Jet), and that safety LaRon Landry (Achilles) was present but not practicing.

    Good to see Santonio throwing tantrums in June. He should continue to help chemistry, especially when times get tough during the season. Tone time!!1

    Ah, ye olde pulled hamstring trick when things aren’t going your way. Revis pulled this last year when he was getting torched.

    Revisionist Steelers fans. His diva attitude isn’t why you got rid of him.

    Steelers got rid of him due to his arrest record, and the fact that your QB had just been accused of sexual assault, and the team wanted to send a message.

    Holmes, Revis, Scott, Cromartie, Sanchez… What a bunch of great guys.

    I agree, his arrest record and his diva attitude was the reason why they got rid of him. Unlike the Jets, the Steelers will not put up with any diva attitudes and btw the next time Ben gets in some trouble, he will be gone.
