Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes began minicamp Tuesday on the sideline. He sat out the first day of minicamp with a tight hamstring, according to Rex Ryan.

Ware Suffering With Neck Issues Since 2009

Jun 7, 2012 9:16 AM

DeMarcus Ware has been suffering with neck issues since December 2009 when he endured a head-first collision against the Chargers. Ware, a six-time Pro Bowl linebacker, explained that he sometimes gets a tingling sensation followed by numbness down his arm that will last a couple of seconds. "Then I'll have all my strength, and it's like all right, wait a little while, and go back out there and keep playing," Ware said. "But sometimes that can take away from maybe one play or a big play you can make, or two plays in the game where it's key situation when you know you're wanting to be out there and playing."

He had offseason surgery after his Rookie of the Year season. "He's fine. Everything is fine. We will err on the side of caution here. I don't even know if I'll practice him the rest of the week. He did work out, he just didn't go with the team," coach Gary Kubiak said.
