Santonio Holmes: 'I survived first New York Jets game'

New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes says that he survived the team's opening game of the 2013 NFL season.

Santonio Holmes has said that he survived the New York Jets' opening game of the 2013 NFL season without picking up any injuries.

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.
