Strength Training for Upper Body is pretty much what you're limited to.
Depending on the type of injury, she may be able to swim (if she's in a cast or brace, thats a no-go if she can't remove it, obviously). My gym has an "Arm Bike" - its like a stationary bike but just for the arms - I tried using it but it was so awkward and never really got my heartrate up...great for my shoulders, though.
My knee is having issues currently and I'm in the same boat - I can't even bend it, so I'm a little more limited. There are LB strength exercises she could do on strength-training machines (with her Doctor's blessing, of course) that don't require putting any strain on the foot....seated leg extensions, hamstring exercises. Don't know what sort of access she has to the machines though.
Rowing won't work - you put a good deal of pressure on the legs and feet doing that, as you sort of "push" off during the standard row.
Send her lots of shared misery from me!
