Jets WR Holmes out for season with foot injury

FLORHAM PARK - (AP) - Santonio Holmes will miss the rest of this season with a Lisfranc injury in his left foot, leaving the struggling New York 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.
