Wide receiver Santonio Holmes has been battling a quad injury for a while now and it hasn’t limited his playing time on gameday, but it was sore enough to put him on the bench today. Also, kick returner Brad Smith injured his knee in the first quarter of the Colts game last weekend, but did return in the third quarter at less than 100 percent. Despite this, head coach Rex Ryan seemed confident both players would be fine for this Sunday in New England.

Another player that missed practice was offensive lineman Damien Woody, who returned to the starting line-up against the Colts after recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. Woody’s knee was in pain the last two days, and Ryan wasn’t so confident about his gameday status when asked about it.

And as usual, quarterback Mark Sanchez was limited in practice today and throwing passes left-handed. The second-year starter has been dealing with a sore throwing shoulder since last month’s win at the Steelers, and Rex Ryan has no doubt Sanchez will be good to go on Sunday.
