Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes may be out for the season, according to ProFootball Talk's Josh Alper. Holmes suffered a foot injury during the team's 34-0 loss to the 49ers on Sunday and underwent X-rays and an MRI. The results of the X-rays were negative, although he was expected to miss at least a few weeks. Now, the team fears that may turn into the rest of the season.

According to Mehta, the team is unlikely to bring back Plaxico Burress to replace Homes:
