FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Santonio Holmes could complete his comeback Sunday.

Rex Ryan remains optimistic that the veteran wide receiver, listed as questionable for the New York Jets' season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, will make his return from a foot injury that sidelined him most of last year.

Holmes was limited at practice Friday after getting a day off, and it's possible he could be active on a limited basis for the game Sunday.

``I'm hopeful he plays,'' Ryan said, ``because he is a difference-maker.''

Holmes seriously injured his left foot last September, and needed two surgeries to repair it, including one in February to remove screws. He has gradually increased what he can do, including running routes and cutting, but said Wednesday that he still wasn't close to being at 100 percent.

Holmes added that his availability could come down to being a game-time decision.

``That's, I guess, what questionable would mean,'' Ryan said. ``What is it, a 50-50 chance or something like that?''

Jeremy Kerley, Stephen Hill, Clyde Gates and Ryan Spadola, an undrafted rookie, are the only other receivers on the active roster.

Nose tackle Kenrick Ellis is also questionable with a back injury that has limited him in practice. Damon Harrison would start in Ellis' place, as he did for much of the preseason.

Quarterback Mark Sanchez (right shoulder) and linebacker Quinton Coples (right ankle) were ruled out earlier in the week.
