Santonio Holmes being carried off after injuring left leg. Helped off field, now being carted to locker room. Was hurt without being hit.

The injury occurred on a non-contact play, similar to the knee buckle that ended Darrelle Revis’ season a week ago. So yeah, it didn’t look good.
Losing his top receiver for any length of time won’t help Mark Sanchez, who already resembles a pre-school all-star with his 12 completions on 24 pass attempts today for just 98 yards with an interception. But hey, no worries Mark, because Antonio Cromartie is not only the best cornerback in the league now, he’s also the Jets’ second best wide receiver. Depth define.
We’ll pass along more information about Holmes as it becomes available.
UPDATE: Looks, they can be deceiving, and books do not prefer to be judged by their covers. While Holmes’ injury may have been similar to Revis’ from a week ago, it’s not, according to Jason La Canfora. Holmes didn’t tear his ACL, and he instead suffered a foot injury. While that sounds like good news because it is good news, the severity of said foot injury isn’t known yet. So the waiting game begins anew for Holmes owners, and anyone insane enough to start Sanchez in a two QB league, or ever.
Ask Matt Schaub what he thinks about really severe foot injuries.
