The wide receiver had not played for almost a year before taking to the field on Sunday, having missed the pre-season while continuing his recovery from a Lisfranc injury.
The 29-year-old told The AP: "I survived. That's probably the biggest thing I can say right now, is that I survived and got through it OK. No injuries, so pretty good.
"It's football season. It's go-time. No point of holding anything back right now. But like I said, I have to respect the [plan] the coaches and the trainers have for me."
Holmes made just one reception for 13 yards during the Jets' win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the weekend.
