X-Rays Negative On Santonio Holmes' Injured Rib

The New York Jets got a scare Saturday when their top receiver, Santonio Holmes, suffered an injury during practice that was initially thought to be a broken rib. It appears, however, Holmes and the Jets dodged a bullet as the team announced X-rays came back negative.

The injury occurred in practice when Holmes took a direct shot to the ribs from cornerback Antonio Cromartie. Following the injury, Jets trainers told head coach Rex Ryan that it appeared Holmes broke a rib. A fracture could have caused Holmes to miss the rest of training camp with the injury possibly even carrying over into the regular season.

The day-to-day prognosis has to come to a major relief to a Jets team already thin at wide receiver. Holmes was second on the team last season with 51 receptions for 654 yards.
