Injury Report: No Santonio Holmes
By Jane McManus
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- As expected, wide receiver Santonio Holmes will not be available when the New York Jets host the Saints this Sunday, but several other injured players are questionable.
Tight end Jeff Cumberland said he was not yet cleared to play, and was in a non-contact red jersey, but Jets coach Rex Ryan noted that he was going through the protocol, and as such could be cleared.
If Cumberland isn’t able to go, Konrad Reuland and Zach Sudfeld will be the team’s available tight ends, although Ryan noted that Chris Pantale could be pulled up from the practice squad if needed.
Right guard Willie Colon (calf), running back Alex Greene (hamstring) and center Nick Mangold (ribs) were also listed as questionable. If Colon is out, Ryan said Vladimir Ducasse would play right guard.
This Week in Fines: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was fined $21,000 for unnecessary roughness when he hit Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill with the crown of his helmet.
Jets wide receiver David Nelson was also fined $7,875 by NFL for unnecessary roughness and a late hit on Bengals’ cornerback Adam Jones.
Late moves: On Friday afternoon the Jets released wide receiver Michael Campbell and signed safety Rontez Miles from the practice squad.
