Santonio Holmes was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday after injuring his left foot -- perhaps seriously -- during the New York Jets' 34-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. X-Rays on the star receiver's foot Sunday came back negative, according to ESPN New York, but Holmes was seen leaving the Meadowlands in a golf cart while holding crutches and with his left foot in a boot. The injury came at a bad time for the Jets in more ways than one. Down 17-0 on the first play of the fourth quarter, Holmes caught a short pass from quarterback Mark Sanchez at the San Francisco 40-yard line, where he suddenly fell to the ground without any contact at all. The ball flew out of Holmes' hands on the way down, and as the receiver rolled around grabbing his leg, Carlos Rogers returned the fumble 51 yards for a touchdown to put away the game for the 49ers.

I'm available! I'm ready, willing & able! Call my agent @ jordanwoy & let's make it happen. " Owens does have a point. The Jets do need some help in the receiving department, particularly with star Santonio Holmes on season-ending injured reserve.

The New York Jets acquired wide receiver Santonio Holmes from the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night for a fifth-round draft pick this month, according to a person familiar with the deal. The person spoke with the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams had yet to announce the trade. Holmes, the 2009 Super Bowl most valuable player, gives quarterback Mark Sanchez another big-time target to throw to in an offense that already had Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery, promising tight end Dustin Keller and recently signed running back LaDainian Tomlinson.

Santonio Holmes will have surgery on his injured left foot, ending the 2012 season for the New York Jets' star receiver after just four games, the team announced Wednesday. Holmes fell to the ground without being touched after making a catch early in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. He has been diagnosed with a Lisfranc foot injury and was placed on the injured reserved list.  "It's a big loss for us," Coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday. A seven-year veteran who was the Super Bowl XLIII MVP as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Holmes is the Jets' best receiver.

Pittsburgh wide receiver Santonio Holmes was named the most valuable player of Super Bowl XLIII for his game-winning, tippy-toe six-yard touchdown catch that pushed the Steelers to a 27-23 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. But Holmes' story is about so much more than that catch, or his MVP trophy. It includes a drug history that threatened to pull him under.

With temperatures predicted to dip into the single digits, tonight's AFC championship game between the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers could go down as the coldest NFL playoff game in the illustrious football history of this city. It's fitting then that Santonio Holmes, the Steelers-turned-Jets receiver, is approaching this reunion with -- as opposed to a flicker of warmth -- the icy resolve of a mercenary. "I don't care about the Steelers right now," Holmes said in the week leading up to this showdown.

Times NFL writer Sam Farmer poses the big questions as each team readies for training camp: The Pittsburgh Steelers learned when Troy Polamalu went down with a knee injury last season what one player can mean to a team. Now, the Steelers will start this season with an absence that's even more conspicuous. In April, the NFL suspended quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for the first six games of the season for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Although he is allowed to participate in training camp, Roethlisberger will have to step aside and hand over the offense — probably to Byron Leftwich — when the season starts.

Stumbling starts have been a hallmark of the San Diego Chargers in recent years, with the franchise usually — but not always — clawing its way out of a deep hole to reach the postseason. With the first practice of training camp two days away, the Chargers again find themselves playing catch-up, thanks to a 4½-month lockout. Their only solace? So is every other NFL team. "I'm not going to compare our situation to any of the other 31 teams, I'm going to compare our situation to where we've been in the past, and we are way behind," Coach Norv Turner said Wednesday.

You could never root for him? That's understandable. But if you think Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger is anything less than an elite NFL quarterback, you're wrong. Roethlisberger might not have the gaudy statistics of New England's Tom Brady or Indianapolis' Peyton Manning ? and, in fact, some of his numbers are cover-your-eyes bad ? but there's no debating his most important statistic: He wins. Look at last Sunday's victory over the New York Jets in the AFC championship game.

What the New York Jets need to do to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday's AFC championship game (3:30 p.m. PST; Channel 2): Make Big Ben a pocket watch The Jets typically mix in a lot of overload blitzes, in which they rush extra defensive players from the right or left side. Because they're usually better off trying to contain Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the pocket, rather letting him roll one direction and extend the play, they're likely to have a more symmetrical rush that doesn't favor one side.

Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, Chicago's Jay Cutler and Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets ? four NFL quarterbacks, four distinct styles, four different paths to this point . . . and one thing in common: They were all first-round picks. It's the first time since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970 that all four quarterbacks in the conference title games were selected in the opening round. More important, each of the four has rounded into a legitimate star, a centerpiece of his team's push to reach the Super Bowl.

Mark Sanchez leads the New York Jets to comeback victories all the time ? the clock winding down, the crowd ringing in his ears, the do-or-die pressure ? And then another day of practice is over. "I can't tell you how many times we've worked on the throws, worked on the situations with timeouts," Sanchez said Tuesday. "We've put it up on the scoreboard. It's a mock situation. [Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer] is on the headset. We put the crowd noise in there. It's about as real as it gets.
