Law on Holmes' injury: 'He put a little extra on it'

We aren't here to question anybody's toughness.

OK, maybe a little.

No, but seriously, when Santonio Holmes went down last week, it appeared to be a serious injury. Turns out, it was -- not career threatening or anything, but he'll be out for the season with a lisfranc injury (foot).

But even so, how about Holmes' reaction? Giving up the ball after the catch allowing the 49ers to return it for a TD? Taking the cart off the field and out of the stadium?

Holmes isn't the only one to suffer that injury. Former Patriots cornerback Ty Law did the same thing years back . . . except he didn't need a cart to bring him in.

In fact, he refused one. He wanted to keep that tough guy image.

Let him explain in the video.
