    Quick Question about Holmes Suspension

    Can he play in preseason games? I would like to see him play and also I think it might conceal some of our packages that we are going to use when he is gone.

    in fact, rex said he was going to treat Holmes as he did Pace last preseason. He was going to play most of all four preseason games to get as close to game shape as possible since he won't be able to practice with the team for until the first practice session after the fourth game is played

    He can play in all 4 preseason games as mentioned. He'll be banned from the facility after the last preseason game and then can return to work week 5.

    If I recall right, Rex had Pace work with the 2nd team a lot though as to not disrupt what the team was doing when he wasn't going to be there for the regular season.

    How would they catch Holmes in the facilities? Does the NFL have a person checking up on him? I cant imagine someone scouring the Jets practice facility looking for Holmes.

    Just like Calvin Pace last year. Only #97 looked super rusty for weeks after his 4 week timeout. Hope the coaching staff has Holmes disciplined enough to stay fresh somehow, some way.

    there is media everywhere, kinda hard to 'hide' a player like that.

    plus team management personnel and coaching staffs other than the pattycakes and belichick are presumed to be honest and capable of enforcing league rules.

    That's brutal, I hadn't know about the rule until Pace served his suspension last season. And he was VERY rusty when he came back.

    Edit: I didn't read all the posts, Dcat's on point.

    True - they even caught a disguised Bobby V hiding out in the dugout after getting tossed. IF they could find that needle in a haystack, Holmes don't stand a chance.
