FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- For the second time in nine days, the New York Jets announced a season-ending injury to one of their best players. This time, it's wide receiver Santonio Holmes, who will have surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury to his left foot.

The Jets waited until Wednesday to reveal the bad news, but they were braced for the worst-case scenario Tuesday. Anticipating it, they signed veteran wide receiver Jason Hill and cleared a roster spot by placing Holmes on injured reserve.

In back-to-back games, the Jets lost arguably their most important non-quarterback players. The bad luck started with All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis, who tore the ACL in left knee and will miss the remainder of the season. Both injuries were non-contact.

"How many people are going to feel sorry for the New York Jets?" Rex Ryan asked. "I know the answer to that -- nobody."

The team didn't disclose the exact nature of Holmes' injury, but a Lisfranc -- a mid-foot sprain or fracture -- is one of the toughest foot injuries to recover from. Ryan said the doctors are confident Holmes "will make a full recovery and be ready for roll for next year."

The Jets still have a large financial commitment to Holmes, who's in the second year of a five-year, $45 million contract. In 2013, he's guaranteed $7.5 million of his $11 million salary.

Given how shitty their QBs are that qualifier was completely unnecessary.

I've been saying it for years, but they need to bring in people to actually compete for starting jobs on offense. Starting a mediocre qb and rb for years without bringing in anyone else who has a chance to win the starting job is dumb. In the case of running backs, going into the past several seasons with shonn greene as your only back who can handle a starters load is inexcusable. We see random RBs come out of nowhere every year, but the Jets just never had those sort of guys in practice competing for the job.

Hopefully, they fire Rex so Ravens can bring him back as DC.
