Sep 30, 2012; East Rutherford, NJ, USA; New York Jets player Santonio Holmes (10) is helped off the field after an injury against the San Francisco 49ers at MetLife Stadium. Mandatory Credit: John Munson/THE STAR-LEDGER via US PRESSWIREThe New York Daily News reportedly has gotten the feeling that those in the Jets organization are assuming that wide receiver Santonio Holmes will miss the rest of the season with the foot injury he sustained Sunday against the 49ers. Holmes suffered the injury after catching a short pass and attempting to turn up the sideline after the catch. There was no contact, but Holmes dropped to the turf in pain and threw the ball directly into the chest of Carlos Rogers, which resulted in a 49er touchdown.

This is the latest of the many terrible things to happen to the Jets, dating back to March when they signed Mark Sanchez to an extension just weeks before trading for Tim Tebow.

After losing Darrelle Revis to an ACL tear in Week 3, the Jets will now be without their best playmakers on both offense and defense. Stephen Hill and Jeremy Kerley project to be the starters for the Jets with Holmes gone, but Chaz Schilens may get the start in Week 5 with Hill recovering from a hamstring injury. With tight end Dustin Keller possibly missing more time with a hamstring injury of his own, the Jets might just have the worst receiving core in the NFL.

For what it's worth, the Jets reportedly do not want to bring back Plaxico Burress, as they believe it would "hamper" Mark Sanchez.

Ranked 30th in yards per carry, the Jets offense will have to rely heavily on Mark Sanchez to make plays using his dreadful array of "weapons." I can't say that I expect the Sanchez-Kerley connection to lead the Jets to many victories. With their defense as bad as it has been in years (22nd in scoring), the Jets are looking at a long season, despite their respectable record of 2-2.

The Tebow chants are coming, and hey, what do they have to lose? Might as well give the fans what they want.
