    Sanchez has slight cartilage tear in right shoulder

    [B][SIZE=2]Mark Sanchez has slight cartilage tear in right shoulder, but Jets QB says he'll play against Bears[/SIZE][/B]

    DAILY NEWS SPORTS WRITER
    Wednesday, December 22nd 2010, 7:00 PM


    The Daily News has learned that Sanchez has a slight cartilage tear in his right shoulder. Sanchez admitted that "it didn't feel right" when he landed awkwardly on his throwing shoulder during a first-quarter run. Whether the cartilage damage will hamper the second-year quarterback for the remainder of the season is unclear. [URL="http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Rex+Ryan"]Rex Ryan[/URL] revealed on Monday that Sanchez underwent a precautionary MRI on Monday.

    Sanchez maintained during his session with the media on Wednesday that he'll absolutely play against the Bears on Sunday. Rex Ryan was "99 percent sure" that Sanchez will start. The Jets (10-4) will clinch its second consecutive playoff appearance under Ryan with a win. They'll also punch their ticket to the postseason if either the [URL="http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Indianapolis+Colts"]Colts[/URL] or [URL="http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Jacksonville+Jaguars"]Jaguars[/URL] lose.

    Sources told the Daily News that Sanchez should be "fine" for Sunday. The quarterback could conceivably play the remainder of the regular season and playoffs without incident.

    The quarterback left little doubt that he'll be under center in [URL="http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Chicago"]Chicago[/URL] even if he's not 100 percent healthy.

    "Whether I am or not, I'm in there," Sanchez said. "I'm playing. That's all there is to it. I got to be on the field. That's what I'm here for and that's what I'm going to do."

    Sanchez only did some soft tossing in position drills and handed the ball off on Wednesday, Ryan said. He also mixed in a few left-handed throws at one point. Both the coach and quarterback said that he could have played if the Jets had a game Wednesday.

    "I'm being safe about it," Sanchez said. "I'm in it for the long haul. We have hopefully 6-7 weeks left. I want to make it through all those weeks. I know I can with our trainers… and the rehab stuff going on there… I'll do my best to get a full practice in (this week), but if not, I'll be ready to play."

    Although Ryan said that Sanchez didn't necessarily have to fully practice during the week to get the start, the coach admitted he'd like to see his quarterback "zip" the ball at some point at some point.

    "If he can't go and he doesn't feel like he can go, then we'll play (Mark) Brunell and Kellen (Clemens)," Ryan said. "I think he's going to be able to go."

    Sanchez, of course, played was nearly flawless against the Steelers even after suffering the injury. He said he kept his shoulder loose throwing on the sideline.

    "Once you get in the game, your energy and adrenaline take over," said Sanchez. "I felt like I could still help the team so I didn't want to go and come out."

    Sanchez took part in what he called "invisible football" during Wednesday's practice. He gave calls to Brunell and Clemens and worked on footwork drills on the side with quarterbacks coach [URL="http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Matt+Cavannaugh"]Matt Cavannaugh[/URL]. Sanchez worked on drop backs and audibles to help get ready for the Bears and "try to make it as game-like as possible."

    Sanchez also admitted that he wasn't thrilled with Ryan's decision to pull a few first-team practice reps from him last week.

    "We have an understanding that I don't always agree with him," Sanchez said. "It's personal to me. I think he knows that. I think the guys on the team know that. I don't care if it's a handoff or a wildcat play. I want to be in the game. That's just the way I feel. I'm possessive about this job."

    Sanchez said that he didn't harbor any ill feelings toward Ryan. He also said his talk with the coach wasn't heated.

    "We're both competitive," Sanchez said. "I think part of it was a psychological thing just to kind of test me a little bit…. Last week, I disagreed with coming out. That's all."

    Interesting, if the Jets clinch this weekend, does he play vs the Bill?

    More interesting, the Jets clinch this weekend with a win and the Pats lose, do you then play Sanchez vs the Bills with a chance of the Pats losing again to end the season?

    WOW!!! That sucks. The Jets should have pulled a Belicheat on this one. They should have called it a strain left him on the injury report like they are obligated to do. Now teams know its a tear. They also know he will be unable to make ALL the throws. Deep outs into the wind etc. They can game plan around it.

    Teams already know he has a shoulder issue..They were going to go after him anyway, anyhow, anywhere whether he does or doesn't have a shoulder issue. You think calling it a strain instead of a tear is going to make 1 bit of difference..Unbelievable.

    And he seemed to make all the throws Sunday after he was injured..The throw to BEdwards?

    Not that it isn't significant, but I am praying that this is really all there is to the injury.

    Great...Now Schitty gets to use this as an excuse when his play calling sucks and we cant score. Add that to Holmes being injured and he'll have a whole list of excuses. Ugghh... :(

    You do realize a slight cartilage tear is nothing even close to a labrum or rotator cuff injury, don't you?

    Comparing this to Pennington is false.

    It's a cartilidge tear, not rotator cuff.

    Just never have a bad tear to the rotator cuff or labrum.


    Brees had a pretty bad injury to his shoulder but him coming back is not the norm.
