New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) said he loves being a Jet and plans on returning in 2014. "It's been a dream come true to play here, and I don't want to go anywhere else," Sanchez said Tuesday. "I know I have two years left [on his contract -- it's actually three], and I don't ever want that to end. I love being a Jet, and I plan on being here."

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) underwent season-ending shoulder surgery Tuesday, Oct. 8.
Wed, 02 Oct 2013 12:33:27 -0700
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he is considering bringing back the color coded wristband in order to help QB Geno Smith reduce turnovers. The team used a similar approach with QB Mark Sanchez in 2009. The wrist band helps the quarterback determine how aggressive or conservative he should be with a play call. "Hey, whatever it takes," Ryan said, adding: "I've been thinking about it. There's a fine line between being aggressive and being smart with it as well."
Fantasy Tip: While the idea is to help Smith prevent turnovers, it is still tough to trust Smith for more than bye week fill in work at this point as he continues to go through rookie bumps and bruises.
Tue, 01 Oct 2013 06:04:19 -0700
Updating an ongoing story, New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) hasn't made a final decision on having season-ending surgery, as previously reported. He's still hoping to avoid surgery, but is ultimately likely to go under the knife.
Mon, 30 Sep 2013 11:28:04 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair his torn labrum and is expected to be sidelined for four to six months. Sanchez initially tried to rehab the injury without surgery but it did not work.
Sat, 14 Sep 2013 16:26:43 -0700

Sat, 14 Sep 2013 08:06:48 -0700

Fri, 13 Sep 2013 13:57:07 -0700
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) could return this season.

Our doctors and trainers are pleased."
Fri, 13 Sep 2013 08:19:57 -0700

Thu, 12 Sep 2013 14:16:33 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is "pleasantly surprised" by his "progress" and intends to rehab his shoulder with hopes of playing again this year. Sanchez feels he won the quarterback competition between himself and QB Geno Smith in the preseason before being injured. "I won the competition. There's no doubt," Sanchez said.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez could return later this year, but he's likely to need surgery on his shoulder at some point in the offseason. Sanchez's injury gives the Jets an excuse to let Smith run with the job and learn by trial and error. Sanchez shouldn't be anywhere close to your fantasy radar.
Thu, 12 Sep 2013 07:32:26 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) plans to rehab his shoulder injury and try to avoid season-ending surgery. It will be a "week-to-week" evaluation.
Wed, 11 Sep 2013 20:45:37 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is likely to have surgery after renowned Dr. James Andrews confirmed the quarterback has a labral tear in the right shoulder, according to league sources.
Fantasy Tip: With Sanchez likely done for the year, the Geno Smith era is upon us. He won his first NFL start against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but Smith is still best treated as a low-end No. 2 QB or reserve fantasy option in most formats.
Wed, 11 Sep 2013 14:49:45 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) and DE Quinton Coples (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 11, and are ruled out for Week 2.

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 11:05:16 -0700
New York Jets QB Geno Smith will receive the start in Week 2 against the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 12, after passing for over 256 yards and a touchdown and interception in the Week 1 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) will miss another game and will seek a second opinion on his separated right shoulder. Sanchez is unlikely to play when he returns, though.
Fantasy Tip: Smith looked shaky at times in his first career start and win, and he'll continue to have growing pains as long as he's on the field. He remains a QB3 in the deepest of leagues.
Mon, 09 Sep 2013 09:13:43 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) has been ruled out for the team's Week 2 game. Sanchez is still being listed as day-to-day.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 13:49:05 -0700
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is day to day, despite reports that Sanchez may have a torn labrum.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 09:04:28 -0700
Doctors think that New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is dealing with a partially torn labrum in his shoulder. He'll go for a second opinion with Dr. James Andrews this week.
Fantasy Tip: Bad news for Sanchez. He might not see the field for most of, if not all, of the season if this is true. Geno Smith's value as a QB3 with plenty of upside is rising. He'll have plenty of growing pains, though, although he can present a threat with his legs. It's not wise to rely on Smith at any point this year.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 08:44:49 -0700
The New York Jets have declared OG Ben Ijalana, LB Danny Lansanah, QB Mark Sanchez, OT Oday Aboushi, LB Quinton Coples, DL Scott Solomon, OG William Campbell inactive for Week 1.

Thu, 05 Sep 2013 14:53:34 -0700
New York Jets DL Quinton Coples (ankle) and QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 5.
Thu, 05 Sep 2013 09:31:41 -0700
New York Jets owner Woody Johnson said the team has no plans to cut QB Mark Sanchez and eat the remainder of his contract. "Mark will be on the team; I don't think there's any question about that," said Johnson, who is paying Sanchez a guaranteed $8.25 million to be a backup. General manager John Idzik also ended speculation that the team would place Sanchez on the Injured Reserve. He'll have a chance to regain the starting job, but the team is moving away from him right now.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez's chances of regaining the starting job probably won't be up to him, but rather how Geno Smith performs in the first few weeks of the season. Even if he does regain the job, Sanchez should not be owned in leagues.
Wed, 04 Sep 2013 16:05:44 -0700
The New York Jets have named QB Geno Smith their Week 1 starting quarterback, but they're not committing to him beyond the season opener. "We're having a competition between quarterbacks, and that competition isn't finished," owner Woody Johnson said. Smith is starting over the injured Mark Sanchez (shoulder), and he's expected to miss a few weeks. The team isn't considering placing Sanchez on the Injured Reserve or releasing him at this time. "We're very comfortable with Geno," head coach Rex Ryan said. "As an organization, we're confident Geno will help us get the job done."
Fantasy Tip: This situation is a mess, as it has been for a while. The team would prefer to keep Sanchez on the bench, even though running with Smith, a rookie, is a big risk. Consider it an even bigger risk to rely on Smith for fantasy purposes, for now.
Wed, 04 Sep 2013 14:37:43 -0700
New York Jets DE Quinton Coples (ankle), DT Leger Douzable (illness), QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) and TE Kellen Winslow (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 4.
Tue, 03 Sep 2013 11:56:47 -0700
The New York Jets aren't ruling out releasing QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder), even though they'd have to eat $8.25 million if they made that move. Sanchez hasn't thrown a football in nine days due to a shoulder injury. He won't play in Week 1, and his status is "very uncertain." If newly-signed QB Brady Quinn learns the offense quickly behind QB Geno Smith, Sanchez could become expendable. The team is ready to move on without Sanchez, but he counts $12.9 million against the salary cap this year, and he'll have a $4.8 million charge next season. The team isn't ruling out putting Sanchez on the short-term Injured Reserve, either. Head coach Rex Ryan didn't indicate that the Jets had any plans to release Sanchez, though.
Tue, 03 Sep 2013 10:52:58 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) rode a stationary bike during practice Monday, Sept. 2, while dealing with a bruised joint in his right shoulder. Sanchez isn't expected to be ready for the season opener in Week 1. QB Geno Smith is the clear choice to start that game, even after the team signed QB Brady Quinn.
Fantasy Tip: Smith has intrigue as a quarterback that can make things happen with his legs on the ground, but he shouldn't be relied on as anything more than a QB3 with upside. The lack of reliable receiving options in New York will be a big problem.
Sat, 31 Aug 2013 21:49:45 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) was still experiencing pain in his throwing shoulder Saturday, Aug. 31, according to multiple league sources. Officially, Sanchez is listed as a day to day with a bruised shoulder joint, but there is a possibility Sanchez might miss a few weeks. The team is prepared for the likelihood QB Geno Smith makes the start in Week 1.
Fri, 30 Aug 2013 16:42:12 -0700
New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is in favor of QB Geno Smith being the team's starting quarterback even if QB Mark Sanchez is healthy.
Fri, 30 Aug 2013 13:41:05 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is listed as day-to-day at this point but could miss several weeks because of his shoulder injury.
Fri, 30 Aug 2013 13:36:10 -0700
New York Jets QB Geno Smith likely will start Week 1 because of the injury to QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder).
Fantasy Tip: Smith has been competing for the starting quarterback job and it appears he will get the start because of an injury. He should not be owned in any league even if he keeps his starting job.
Fri, 30 Aug 2013 00:46:54 -0700
New York Jets QB Matt Simms, in competition for the No. 3 quarterback job behind Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith, threw for 285 yards and led four scoring drives as the Jets won 27-20 over the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Aug. 29.
Thu, 29 Aug 2013 17:44:12 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) is not expected to be ready for Week 1 because of his deep shoulder bruise. He has not been able to throw a ball at this point.
Tue, 27 Aug 2013 11:27:08 -0700
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said it is possible the team could wait until game day of Week 1 to announce who the starting quarterback will be.
Fantasy Tip: With the way the Jets have handled the competition to this point, nothing is surprising. Neither Mark Sanchez or Geno Smith has much value outside of a fill in during a bye week.
Mon, 26 Aug 2013 21:01:08 -0700
The battle for the starting quarterback job for the New York Jets is technically still open between QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) and QB Geno Smith, but that might only be because Sanchez is banged up and uncertain for Week 1. Smith was terrible in the team's last preseason game, and it is believed if Smith were the clear-cut choice by Ryan to start, it would have been announced already.
Mon, 26 Aug 2013 13:53:47 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 26. He will not play in the team's final preseason game and is considered questionable for Week 1.
Sun, 25 Aug 2013 21:45:35 -0700
Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a bruised right shoulder joint, according to a league source Sunday, Aug. 25. He left the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24, against the New York Giants. Sanchez has been ruled out for the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 29, against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy Tip: There is no word on how much time Sanchez will miss, but the QB race in New York is as murky as ever, especially since Sanchez won't get a last chance in the preseason finale.
Sat, 24 Aug 2013 19:08:04 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder) left the team's preseason game early Saturday, Aug. 24, after suffering a right shoulder injury.
Fri, 23 Aug 2013 15:05:19 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez (toe) is dealing with a toenail problem. "They're digging a hole in Mark Sanchez's toe big enough to pull a half dollar out of it 'cause he's got some nail that's infected. He doesn't blink, he doesn't tell me," quarterbacks coach David Lee said, pointing out how Sanchez plays through nicks he picks up.
Fantasy Tip: This doesn't help Sanchez while he's pushing to win the QB job over Geno Smith, but it doesn't look like it's slowed him down much. The Jets could name their starter after their third preseason game this Saturday. Stay tuned.
Thu, 22 Aug 2013 15:54:21 -0700
The quarterback competition between New York Jets QBs Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith is too close to call, and it's unknown when the team will make a decision on a starter. Smith will start the preseason game against the New York Giants Saturday, Aug. 24, and he'll play into the third quarter with Sanchez replacing him after. The coaching staff won't commit to naming a starter before the final preseason game. "We could (wait until after) because, like we've said the whole time, we're not putting a timetable on this," Ryan said. "When we're ready to make that decision and we feel great about it as an organization, we'll make that decision."
Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is comfortable with Sanchez as the starter but wants to see what Smith can do. "Mark has had a terrific camp," Mornhinweg said. "He's had a bunch of ups, and he's had some dips. Geno has had an outstanding camp for a rookie. He's had just a little bit more than a couple of plays in the preseason, so we'll see what happens."
Fantasy Tip: Don't hold your breath here. The longer the team waits to make an announcement, the greater chance Smith has of winning the job. Smith will be rough around the edges if he starts in Week 1, but he clearly has more upside than Sanchez. Neither are worth drafting in standard leagues.
Thu, 22 Aug 2013 14:09:46 -0700
New York Jets QB Geno Smith went 5-for-6 with five touchdowns during team drills Thursday, Aug. 22. QB Mark Sanchez went 4-for-4 with one passing touchdown and one rushing touchdown. The team was focusing on goal line work and game plan-specific things during practice. Quarterbacks coach David Lee said it was the best Smith has looked in terms of his fundamentals.
Wed, 21 Aug 2013 16:05:37 -0700
New York Jets QB Geno Smith had a great practice Wednesday, Aug. 21, going 15-for-16 in 11-on-11 drills with two touchdowns. "It wasn't brutal that's for sure," head coach Rex Ryan said in reference to Smith's performance. "That was a great day; I don't know if that was his best day because he's had a lot of good ones but he had a great one today." He was in total command and had some success against the first-team defense. QB Mark Sanchez went 10-for-14 with a touchdown but also took three sacks. Ryan has yet to name a starter for the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24.
Fantasy Tip: Smith is hanging around in the quarterback competition now that he over his ankle injury. We still expect Sanchez to begin the season as the starter, but this isn't a lock by any means. Don't look to take either QB on draft day, though.
Wed, 21 Aug 2013 11:57:24 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez said he expects QB Geno Smith to start the team's third preseason game.
Wed, 21 Aug 2013 11:51:42 -0700
New York Jets QB Geno Smith went 15-for-16 with two touchdowns and one sack in team drills during practice Wednesday, Aug. 21. QB Mark Sanchez went 10-for-14 with one touchdown and three sacks during the drills.
Tue, 20 Aug 2013 12:35:16 -0700
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan won't commit to naming a regular season starting quarterback by the fourth preseason game.
Fantasy Tip: All signs point to Mark Sanchez winning the competition over Geno Smith, but both quarterbacks have limited fantasy football value in 2013.
Mon, 19 Aug 2013 17:02:51 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez likes the team's new offensive system, and is comfortable working with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. "I love the way you can mix up personnel, formations, use some base concepts and run them a million different ways with motions and shifts," Sanchez said. "I love that he gives us a lot of freedom at the line to go over protection and redirect it with [Nick] Mangold. I think the system, in general, just lends itself to quarterbacks trying to get the ball out quick, taking our shots down field and getting wide outs and skill position players in the right places to distort a defense. Then you go make the read, make the throw and make them work for it."
Sat, 17 Aug 2013 09:08:15 -0700
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez likely will be the starting quarterback Week 1 even though it appears general manager John Idzik would like QB Geno Smith to win the job.
Thu, 15 Aug 2013 13:43:46 -0700
New York Jets general manager John Idzik allowed QB Geno Smith (ankle) to resume practicing Sunday, Aug. 11, knowing that he was bothered by a sprained ankle. Idzik is a big proponent of Smith in the quarterback competition with QB Mark Sanchez, and he's made it known that he has the final say on that matter over head coach Rex Ryan. Smith had his worst day of practice Wednesday, Aug. 14, and Ryan admitted that his ankle was not 100 percent. Sanchez is likely to win the job if Smith doesn't play in the team's second preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez had a leg up all along, but Smith's ankle injury has set him back considerably. This doesn't mean that Smith won't eventually become the starter at some point this year if Sanchez struggles early. Avoid both QBs in shallow formats.
