Mark Sanchez Has Sore Throwing Shoulder; Had MRI Earlier Today

New, comments

Mark Sanchez may not have had the highest passer rating in Sunday's win over the Steelers, but he did a great job of making smart decisions with the football and effectively managing the game. Furthermore, he didn't turn the football over once, and completed 19 of 29 passes for 170 yards.

Oh, and he scored the Jets first offensive touchdown in three games on a naked bootleg which worked to perfection. Not too shabby.

If Sanchez can sit in the pocket and make accurate passes as he did in Sunday's game, the Jets will fare well in the near future.

Unfortunately, Sanchez injured his right (throwing) shoulder in the first quarter of yesterday's matchup in Pittsburgh while running the football. Thankfully, head coach Rex Ryan says he will be OK and is just sore, according to New York Daily News.

"[The MRI] was positive," Ryan said. "He'll play on Sunday, but he's sore.

So, QB Mark Sanchez has a sore shoulder, but will play next week Vs. Chicago Bears. Also worth nothing, CB Darrelle Revis and CB Antonio Cromartie were also sore and received treatment on Monday. No other details on that front as to the extent of the soreness.
