The latest news on wide receiver Santonio Holmes doesn't sound good for the New York Jets.

The New York Daily News reported Tuesday that the Jets are still awaiting final test results but fear that Holmes' foot injury will end his season. A final diagnosis has yet to be determined.

Holmes went down during the Jets' 34-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. With a lack of wide receivers and the Jets struggling on offense, he would be missed. Holmes has 20 receptions for 272 yards and one touchdown this season.

Rookie receiver Stephen Hill, the team's No. 1 draft pick, is nursing a sore hamstring and hasn't had a catch in the past two games. Reports indicate that the Jets might seek to add a receiver.

The Jets (2-2) already were dealing with another significant loss after Pro Bowl cornerback Derrelle Revis was lost for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
