CORTLAND — Panic has not set in, but Santonio Holmes’ rib-cartilage injury is becoming a growing concern for a team learning a new system.

Mark Sanchez’s top weapon spent Jets practice Wednesday morning in the trainers’ room to receive treatment for a tightness in his back that may be linked to his existing concern. Rex Ryan didn’t rule out the possibility that Gang Green’s No. 1 wide receiver could miss the rest of the preseason.

“Certainly it’s possible,” Ryan said after practice. “But I don’t think that will be the case.”

Starting nose tackle Sione Po’uha’s short-term prognosis was much clearer: He definitely will miss the final three preseason games with a “really tight back.” Po’uha, who recently had a MRI that came back negative, was “100% confident” that the back will not be a recurring problem.

Holmes’ situation appears a bit more tenuous.

The Jets’ top playmaker injured his ribs after getting tackled by Antonio Cromartie during in an intrasquad scrimmage on Aug. 4. He has spent much of the past 10 days doing conditioning drills and catching machine-tossed passes on the sidelines. Earlier this week, he did some light positional drills before his back acted up. Ryan was unsure whether this latest injury was related to the rib problem.
