Major Jets announcement made by Ian Rapoport Dan Leberfeld

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network has announced that Mark Sanchez is going to have season-ending shoulder surgery.

The Jets put him on short-term injured reserved 16 days ago. What could have changed in a little over two weeks?

Perhaps Sanchez came to the realization that is there is almost nothing, barring an injury, that would bring John Idzik-Rex Ryan to take their prized-rookie quarterback Geno Smith out of the line-up.
