Jets Quarterback Mark Sanchez to Miss Eight Weeks, NFL Team Says

Jets Quarterback Mark Sanchez to Miss Eight Weeks, NFL Team Says

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was placed on injured reserve-designated for return, meaning he’ll be sidelined for the next eight weeks, the National Football League team said on its website.

Sanchez, 26, the Jets’ starter the past four seasons, injured his right shoulder in the team’s third preseason game on Aug. 24. Rookie Geno Smith has started the first two regular-season games and threw three interceptions in a 13-10 loss to New England two days ago.

Sanchez is eligible to practice after six weeks and can return to the active roster after eight weeks, the Jets said.

Sanchez, who is guaranteed $8.25 million this season, spent the offseason competing with Smith for the starter’s job. Sanchez was benched twice last season, when he committed an NFL-high 26 turnovers, including 18 interceptions.
