In a haunting case of deja vu, Santonio Holmes fell to the turf on Sunday with no one around him.

UPDATE: Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 12:10 p.m. ET by Ben Chodos

Santonio Holmes and the New York Jets received the news they desperately did not want to hear, and the wide receiver will miss the rest of the 2012 season.

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reported the latest development on Holmes' foot injury.

Losing Holmes is the second major blow to the Jets this season, as they have already lost All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis to a torn ACL.

According to Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole, Santonio Holmes is more than likely done for the season:

Another day, another significant New York Jet done for the season. Their season continues to plummet downhill.

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, there is an ominous feeling around the team that Holmes' foot injury will end his season:

The Jets already have a dearth of offensive weapons, so losing Holmes for the season would be devastating. Despite being 2-2, the Jets' season is starting to look very bleak.

The New York Jets are still unsure about the extent of Santonio Holmes' foot injury, but head coach Rex Ryan is certain that the team will be without its star wide receiver for at least one week. 

The New York Daily News'  Manish Metha reported the following:

The road to recovery for Holmes will be clearer once the MRI results finish their journey, and the struggling Jets offense can only hope the injury is not serious.

The New York Daily News'  Manish Mehta has some X-Ray results for us. 

The ligament damage, or lack thereof, will likely have to wait until a Monday MRI.

There are bound to be more updates coming out today, but I'd be surprised if anything of substance comes out until tomorrow. 

UPDATE: Sunday, Sept. 30 at 4:08 p.m. ET by Richard Langford

In an unexpected turn, it has been revealed that the Holmes' injury is to his foot and not his knee. The Jets bring us the update on his status. 

While it would be natural for Jets fans to rejoice at the news that this is not an injury, they still have plenty of reasons to be worried. This could be the dreaded Lisfranc injury, which would likely end his season.

The New York Jets tweeted out this early update.  

They have also ruled him out for the rest of this game. 

Jets fans have to be cringing at the sight of this news, and those cringes have to be quickly followed by thoughts of a season without their leading receiver.

While there is nothing indicating there are any ligament tears or anything else that would require season-ending surgery, Jets fans know how this one goes.

The deja vu comes not from a previous incident involving Holmes, but from the Jets' star cornerback Darrelle Revis last week.

In an incident disturbingly similar, Revis fell to a heap with no one around him. He is now done for the year

So expect to see some tweets about Holmes being scheduled for a Monday MRI and some small quote from Rex Ryan about "Holmes being evaluated later" as we progress here on Sunday. 

And it is not going to be a bright Sunday in Jetsville. 

They are getting crushed by the 49ers. That inevitable loss will drop them to 2-2, and they are now staring at the very real prospect of having to play the rest of this season without their best corner and receiver. 

Holmes entered this game with 16 catches for 243 yards and a touchdown this season. He also has a whopping 33 targets, which is over twice as many as the next closest receiver on the team.  

This is a huge blow to this offense. Hopefully, it will only be a temporary one.
