Jets Holmes Out For Season With Foot Injury
Santonio Holmes will miss the rest of this season with a Lisfranc injury in his left foot, leaving the struggling Jets without their top offensive playmaker.
The Jets announced Wednesday that Holmes, who will require surgery, was placed on season-ending injured reserve. The team signed free agent wide receiver Jason Hill to help replace him.
The news comes just over a week after star cornerback Darrelle Revis was likely lost for the season with a torn ligament in his left knee.
Holmes went down on the first play of the fourth quarter Sunday after catching a short pass. X-rays on the foot were negative, but the MRI exam results were sent to a foot specialist in North Carolina and the Jets’ worst fears were confirmed.
