Injury Update 08/13

by Phil Sullivan on August 13, 2012

Rex Ryan provided several injury updates during his press conference today.  It had been reported that Eric Smith would miss the entire preseason, so the update on Smith is encouraging.

On Eric Smith’s injury…
No. I just saw him out there. To me, I don’t know what the official word is but he looks real doubtful for this game, but he seems to be doing better. The last (time) I talked to him he seemed to be doing much better.

On Santonio Holmes’ injury…
I don’t see Santonio (Holmes) playing with that rib. He was out there in individual a little bit but you have to be able to protect yourself.

On the injury updates…
I don’t see Sione (Po’uha) playing. (Jeremy) Kerley, again all these guys will be real questionable for the game.

On Po’uha not participating in the last few practices…
He has some back soreness, but we’re just going to be conscientious with him. He is getting rehab instead of being out there running drills. We think it’s best to get him to where he’s feeling good.

On timetable for Kerley returning fully to practice…
I would see him returning to practice hopefully at the end of this week and going through some individual drills. We are being cautious with him, but he’s showing progress.

On if Kerley will play Saturday…
I don’t think so.
