Jets’ Sanchez Says Shoulder Has Improved
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) – Mark Sanchez says his right shoulder is feeling the best it has in “three, four weeks,” and is a full participant in practice for the New York Jets for the first time in nearly a month.
Sanchez has been bothered by a sore shoulder since falling awkwardly in a game against Pittsburgh on Dec. 19. He has played well through the injury, and says Wednesday he’ll be “ready to go” for the Jets’ playoff game against the New England Patriots (14-2) on Sunday.
Sanchez is 3-1 in playoff games, including leading the Jets (12-5) to a 17-16 victory over the Colts in Indianapolis last Saturday. But, he was off target on several throws in the first half. He says that was a result of having an off game, rather than the shoulder bothering him.
