[QUOTE]Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez went for a "precautionary" MRI on his right (throwing) shoulder today, coach Rex Ryan said, but will "obviously" play Sunday against the Bears.
Ryan said Sanchez injured his shoulder on the Jets' second offensive drive of the game, when he ran the ball and his arm landed in an "awkward position." He didn't miss any time and played very well in the 22-17 win at Pittsburgh, completing 19-of-29 passes for 170 yards, with no interceptions and a rushing touchdown.
"Any time it's your quarterback, you're going to make sure hes OK," Ryan said. "The MRI showed it was a positive thing for us. Heíll be ready to play on Sunday. Will it limit him? I donít know."
Ryan downplayed the injury and said he wasn't sure what to call it, settling on "sore shoulder." He emphasized the fact that Sanchez played the full game with it and joked that "I probably shouldn't have said anything."
Ryan said he expected Sanchez may be limited in practice this week. He added that he took a few reps away from him last week, too, inserting Mark Brunell to send the message that all players are accountable for their play.
