Santonio Holmes has a Lisfranc injury and will likely miss the rest of the season.
The New York Jets wide receiver sustained the injury to his left foot in the fourth quarter of the team's 34-0 loss to the 49ers Sunday.
A final answer on the injury will come on Wednesday after Holmes got the opinions of multiple doctors, who will compare notes to exactly diagnose the injury. it's uncertain whether the foot has a break.
Lisfranc (midfoot) injuries result if bones in the midfoot are broken or ligaments that support the midfoot are torn. The severity of the injury can vary from simple to complex, involving many joints and bones in the midfoot.
A Lisfranc injury is often mistaken for a simple sprain, especially if the injury is a result of a straightforward twist and fall. However, injury to the Lisfranc joint is not a simple sprain that should be simply "walked off." It is a severe injury that may take many months to heal and may require surgery to treat.
