Report: Mark Sanchez to Have Shoulder Surgery?

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports


According to both Jets beat writer Brian Costello and ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Sanchez will take a few days to consider his options. If Sanchez does not decide to have surgery on his shoulder, he will continue rehab as scheduled.


ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that according to league sources, Mark Sanchez will undergo shoulder surgery at some point this season. Recovery time for labral tear surgery can take up to six months.

While it already looked bleak with the Week 1 performance of rookie quarterback Geno Smith, it would appear that this is the end for him here. You can't help but feel for Sanchez, who five years ago came to the Jets with such lofty expectations after a breakout college season at USC.

This may be the end of the Mark Sanchez era in New York.
