Jets coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg bemoan what they have not seen in the passing game lately, namely precision and timing.

Well, there’s a real good chance they are also not going to see two of their top receivers, Santonio Holmes and Jeremy Kerley, Sunday against Miami.

Holmes, who played two games after missing five with a hamstring injury, and Kerley who sat the last two games with a dislocated elbow, both are listed as questionable for Miami. Holmes did not practice Friday but sounded optimistic — more so than Ryan, who admitted he is “concerned.”

“I feel like I have been feeling the past two weeks. Pretty good,” said Holmes, who missed most of last season with a foot injury.

“We’ll see how he is,” Ryan said. “He did not practice [on Friday] so I’m concerned.”

“It’s just unfortunate because we know when this guy’s healthy, he’s a tremendous player. Hopefully, we can get him back through it and get him healthy because we’re going to need him.”

That’s especially true if Kerley is scratched and, again, the player sounded more hopeful than coach.
Kerley said he did a little bit more in practice as the week progressed. He called himself a “game-time decision.”

“Game time, baby. We’ll see,” Kerley said.

Ryan discussed Kerley’s practice participation, which while progressively more, still was limited.

“He hasn’t been practicing full, so it’s just one of those things,” Ryan said. “Like I said, it doesn’t surprise anybody if he can’t go. We all saw the injury and we know what it looked like. “It’s a little tougher coming back as a receiver than maybe it would be even other positions. We’ll see how it goes. He’s a gutty guy and tough young man, and I know if he’s capable, he’ll be out there.

“There’s: ‘What happens if he gets hit, if he lands he has to protect himself?’ You never want a player out there who can’t protect himself, ever. If that’s the case, then clearly he won’t play.”

Which makes the passing game, already dealing with the growth of Geno Smith and his NFL-high 18 interceptions, even more complicated.
