Jets Training Camp 2012: Santonio Holmes Talks About His Absence From Practice

New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes didn't practice on Thursday due to what he calls "general soreness".

The star playmaker for Gang Green talked to the media however, and expounded on his injury when asked what specifically is the problem.

"It's just a lot of running, a lot of soreness in the body. It takes a few days to get adjusted to getting back into camp and wearing shoulder pads and getting back into football shape."

Holmes also made it clear he's ready to return once the training staff clears him for practice.

The receiver also likes the way practices have been run thus far. The tempo has been ratcheted up, and Holmes loves it.

"I think the tempo is wonderful. It gives us an insight to how the game is going to be played from the start. (Coach Sparano) didn't want us to come in and work on getting into shape. That's what we have the offseason for - to get into shape and he wants us full go 100 miles per hour every day and that's what we have to prove for him."
