Mark Sanchez talks shoulder Dan Leberfeld

Mark Sanchez’s was asked a myriad of questions about his injured right shoulder after the Jets-Bills game.

First off, how is his shoulder feeling?

“It’s alright,” Sanchez said. “I’m ready to play. Ready to go.”

Did he know the Jets gameplan for the Buffalo game wasn’t going to allow him to throw?

“I had a pretty good idea,” Sanchez said.

How much actual work did he do in practice last week? 

We just did as much as the doctors and trainers thought I should and took it like a regular week preparation-wise,” Sanchez said. “The shoulder feels good, so we’ll be ready to play.”

How sore is his problematic shoulder now, compared to after the Chicago game? 

“Pretty sore,” Sanchez said. “I’m going to play. It’s not a big deal.”

 Are you going to have to deal with that soreness and pain through the playoffs?

“It sounds like it,” Sanchez said. “I can do it for four weeks.”

Can he mess up his shoulder even more by playing with the injury? 

“No, the doctors would have said something about that first,” Sanchez said.

Will he need surgery after the season? 

“They’ve bounced ideas around, but it’s so far in advance (that) hopefully, we’re not talking about it for another month or so,” Sanchez said.
