Holmes is tending to a family matter, according to the team. The team released no further details. Therefore, his mandatory reporting date has been moved to Wednesday.
This is an important camp for Holmes because of a looming suspension. He will miss the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He needs as much camp time as possible to learn the offense and get into shape.
In other news, the Jets placed nose tackle Kris Jenkins (hamstring) and quarterback Kellen Clemens (calf) on the active physically-unable-to-perform list. They're eligible to practice as soon as they pass a physical.
Jenkins was having problems with his hamstring in the spring because it was used as part of a graft for his surgically repaired knee. Part of the hamstring was used to repair his ACL last October.
