Santonio Holmes will miss the New York Giants game this Saturday and if I were a betting man I would say the chances of seeing Stephen Hill are very slim.

Speaking to Newsday today, Stephen Hill said he wasn't sure if the finer was dislocated or broken.

"This finger, just -- I don't know," he said, explaining how it happened. "Dislocated or whatever. It's fine. It's fine. I'm going to try my best to get it to bend a little bit. It's still hurting a little bit but it's alright."

Hill suffered the injury going up against Darrelle Revis and missing the 2nd round of 11 v 11 team activities.

Unfortunately for the Jets, this comes as the worst possible time. At the moment we have Santonio Holmes sidelined with a rib injury, Kerley limited with a hamstring injury and Chaz Schilens slowed by an ankle injury.

Hill already has it all to do transitioning from a triple option offense to a pro style offense, now he may lose practise time. Lets hope it doesn't keep him out too long, however when a player has it heavily wrapped and he can't bend his finger, well it's not a good sign.
