With the NFL Week 4 games winding down, two key wide receivers have sustained injuries. The New York Jets, losing 27-0 to the San Francisco 49ers have carted WR Santonio Holmes off the field. Holmes went down on the field without contact, an injury which does not look good for Holmes injury. He was removed from the field and appeared unable to put any weight on his leg.
The Detroit Lions also saw WR Calvin Johnson leave the field after a helmet to helmet hit after getting tagged by Minnesota Vikings LB Chad Greenway. Johnson did eventually return to the game for the Lions but Detroit is struggling against the Minnesota Vikings.
If the Jets have had another key player sustain an ACL injury in the second consecutive week, it’s just got to be a matter of time before speculation ties the Jets to a return of Plaxico Burress, especially given the futility of their offense and lack of a threatening receiving corps.

New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes injured his foot
on the first snap of the fourth quarter during yesterday’s 34-0 loss to the San
Francisco 49ers, reports Kareem Copeland of NFL.com:
Holmes caught a short pass from Jets quarterback Mark
Sanchez and turned to make a move.
However, he immediately dropped to the ground after turning awkwardly on
The always classy Santonio Holmes looked like he got shot by a large caliber gun when he went down on a non-contact injury and lamely gave the ball up to the Niners defense who returned if for a TD. It turns out that this consummate teammate and all around good guy (see Jets fans, we are not too hard on Holmes )sustained a foot injury, possibly a ligament tear, not a knee injury...

There's a cloud of mystery surrounding the injury to the Jets receiver, but let's do our best to look at the facts. We know Holmes suffered a non-contact injury in New York's loss to San Francisco. The injury was bad enough that Holmes gave himself up and fumbled the ball on the play and he was eventually carted off the field. Initial reports suggested...
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, as the New York Jets continue to wait for the doctors to tell them the extent of Santonio Holmes’ foot injury, they believe he’s likely done for the season.
If Holmes is done for the season, I believe the Jets won’t have a choice but to go and sign a player like Plaxico Burress, Terrell Owens or Chad Johnson.

New York Jets’ coach Rex Ryan reiterated during a Monday press conference that Mark Sanchez is their quarterback. “He’s definitely our guy,” Ryan insisted. “I know this is killing him. He’s going to want to respond.”

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, it sounds like Jets head coach Rex Ryan doesn’t expect wide receiver Santonio Holmes to be a back for a few weeks after injuring his foot on Sunday.
So until Holmes comes back, it looks like Jeremy Kerley and Chaz Schilens will be the Jets’ starting receivers. Good luck Rex.
Will the New York Jets reach out to veteran free agent WR Plaxico Burress now that Santonio Holmes has suffered a serious injury? Or how about Terrell Owens? Chad Johnson? The New York Jets could use an infusion of help at the receiver position and why not reach out to Plaxico Burress, a veteran receiver with knowledge of the Jets playbook who could contribute as soon as he joins...
