03:40 PM ET 06.16 | Santonio Holmes hasn't been talking to the media much this offseason as he recovers from lisfranc surgery that forced him to miss the end of 2012. The Jets' No. 1 wide receiver recently spoke to the Jets official website, and ESPN New York recapped the interview. Holmes said he had a grade four lisfranc injury, which is the most severe kind. Holmes' status for training camp is in doubt and he may not be ready for the season opener.

Anybody else notice that SI is attracting some really bottom feeder advertising these days?

Just gets better and better for the Jets. The good news is, however, that none of the QB's can throw to wide receivers anyway, so Santonio's return isn't really vital to their success.

This is where real reporters understand that lisfranc is not high on everybody's repertoire an save us a trip to googleland to find out what it is.

Holmes is a tool...the Jets' best offensive player, but a tool nonetheless.

The Jets have an offense?

Yes, but he has a lisfranc injury.

But now FN can add educational to its informational status.

Lisfranc (midfoot) injuries result if bones in the midfoot are broken or ligaments that support the midfoot are torn. The severity of the injury can vary from simple to complex, involving many joints and bones in the midfoot.

From Google
"A Lisfranc injury is often mistaken for a simple sprain, especially if the injury is a result of a straightforward twist and fall. However, injury to the Lisfranc joint is not a simple sprain that should be simply "walked off." It is a severe injury that may take many months to heal and may require surgery to treat."
