AP source: Jets' Holmes could miss rest of season
Holmes went down on the first play of the fourth quarter of the Jets' 34-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday after catching a pass. X-rays on the foot were negative, but subsequent MRI exam results were sent to a foot specialist in North Carolina. Results of that exam confirmed the Jets' worst fears.

Texans first repeat No. 1
NEW YORK (AP) - The Houston Texans are the first team to hang on to the top spot in the AP Pro32 power rankings.
A week after becoming the fourth team in as many weeks to ascend to No. 1, Houston proved it belonged there with a resounding 38-14 rout of the Tennessee Titans to remain unbeaten in four games.
The Texans receive 11 first-place votes and 382 points from the 12-person panel of media members who regularly cover the NFL. Atlanta (4-0) remains second with 369 points, and Arizona - the NFL's other unbeaten team - is fifth with one first-place vote and 342 points.
Houston next faces the Jets, who fell five spots to 23rd after a 34-0 loss at home to San Francisco. The 49ers moved up one spot to fourth, just behind Baltimore.
