Practice report: 'Tone' out, Wilson in

October, 18, 2013
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Santonio Holmes didn't appear any closer to getting on the field for the Jets this week, spending the last full practice of Week 7 on the sideline in a T-shirt riding the exercise bike.

The Jets wide receiver said he was getting seven hours of treatment a day on his foot and hamstring when he spoke to the media Thursday. He complained that his 10-minute weekly media obligation was detracting from his rehab when asked how he was feeling.

"How am I feeling right now? Like, you guys are interrupting my treatment time right now,” Holmes said.

The good news for the Jets: Kyle Wilson (concussion) practiced without the red jersey. Having the cornerback return the week after his concussion would help; with Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski back in the lineup, the Jets can use every defensive veteran they can get.

Dee Milliner (hamstring) also practiced, at least for the portion that was open to the media. We will get a more detailed practice report later.

WR Greg Salas (knee) was the only other Jet on the bike.
