the Dolphins

In what seemed like a last-ditch game for the Jets, bringing as much talent to bear against the Dolphins would seem like a good plan, but after a last minute activation, Jets recevier Santonio Holmes only saw three snaps in the?rather disheartening loss to the Dolphins.
Ryan said there was a plan to "pace" Holmes through Sunday, which saw rookie starting quarterback Geno Smith benched after a terrible first half in favor of the inexperienced Matt Simms.

"We didn't want to overload him," the coach said of Holmes. "We were trying to be careful out there. I don't' know how many plays he played, but I know it wasn't that many."

That plan hadn't been relayed to Holmes, though, he said.
