Banged the receiver aircraft "star and large knee and thigh muscle last week and as contained questionable in Week 2. It was Holmes, one of three players to gang green, along with David Harris back (toe) and safety Eric Smith (ankle), which provides in Friday's practice was limited.
Harris is expected, and the aircraft "the second-leading tackler behind Bart Scott, to play on Sunday. Holmes and Smith, on the other hand, is the biggest question marks, in spite of all those who participated in the drill position since coming down with the stream of knocks.
Despite these concerns, Holmes expressed confidence on Thursday that he will play this week, as reported by Rich Cimini of ESPN.
"Nothing to worry about. Today's match is on Sunday," said Holmes.
Usually, there will not be anything to worry about, and against a team as bad as Jacksonville, there really should not be. Certainly, outcrops are 1-0 after beating Tennessee at home, 16-14, but they still project as one of the worst teams in the NFL, with Luke McCown took snaps under center Drew Maurice Jones walk lightly on cleaning him up right knee .
Certainly, you will miss Mark Sanchez Holmes, who was targeted 10 times in a week (1), which ended with six catches for 70 yards, but he probably will not suffer a lot if he had to redirect those throws for LaDainian Tomlinson, Plaxico [Burress, Derrick Mason and Dustin Keller.
Particularly against the Jacksonville pass defense, which was among the bottom five in the league in sacks and yards allowed last season and gave up six touchdown passes, more than any other team.
"May Sanchize" can not be a world beater, but he will not have to be bumps against a team that managed to put the ball in the end zone just once against the Titans defense, which was average, at best, in 2010. If all goes according to plan, the aircraft only to run the ball and leave the management of Sanchez to win the match easily notches short of, with or without Holmes.
The biggest concern for the green band to be put in Harris and Smith. Can be without the health and defense of the two countries in the squad, run the aircraft, the struggle to stop the Mo Jo Drew, who rushed for 97 yards and a drop in Week 1.
The bumps love nothing more than to play ball control with Drew Jones, as they did against Tennessee, and force Sanchez to play catch-up, which becomes more difficult for the QB in the third year without Holmes's healthy to throw downfield.
Either way, the aircraft is still far and away favorite in this one, with more than enough of an advantage in talent and momentum to send the cats' back to North Florida with the first loss this season.
