Jets’ quarterback Mark Sanchez has officially been listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears. Sanchez has been limited in practice all week with a cartilage tear in his throwing shoulder. The second year quarterback had more zip behind his throws in Friday’s practice and he says there is no question that he will be out there leading this team. Sanchez told reporters that his shoulder felt the way it did going into last Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh and the way it felt the rest of the season.
Sanchez will start on Sunday. It is possible that the Jets tried to play the media by overhyping this story to make everyone forget about Rex Ryan’s foot fetish video. Whether he is in pain or not, I fully expect Sanchez to be out there playing. He knows how important this game is and knows he needs to be out there to give the Jets the best chance to win.
