New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes returned to practice on Monday for the first time in 10 months, according to ESPN New York.

Holmes' 2012 season ended prematurely when the wide receiver suffered a Lisfranc injury. He was activated from the physically unable to perform list on Friday and returned to practice a few days later.

ESPN New York reported that he was running at less than full speed during the portion of practice open to the media. But rookie quarterback Geno Smith was quick to praise the effort and ability of his No. 1 wide receiver.

From ESPN New York:

"He's a guy that's done tremendous things in this league," quarterback Geno Smith said. "To see him out there running, healthy again, to get back into the mix of things, it's really promising because to add another weapon to this offense is going to make us better."

It's unknown whether or not Holmes will suit up for the Jets' final preseason game. Either way, the folks over at Gang Green Nation, SB Nation's New York Jets blog, are just happy to have him back at practice.
