New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes is dealing with a strained hamstring that is likely to keep him out of at least the team's game at Atlanta on Monday night.
While he says Thursday he's not frustrated about having to rehabilitate another injury, Holmes did seem a bit concerned he wasn't a bigger part of the offense in the Jets' 38-13 loss at Tennessee last Sunday. He had one catch despite being on the field for 49 plays before the hamstring injury.
Holmes is still working on his chemistry with rookie quarterback Geno Smith and says he "can't throw it to myself and catch it. Otherwise, I would."
Holmes missed most of last season with a foot injury, but was coming off a career-best 154 yards receiving against Buffalo.
