Sanchez should go on short-term IR Dan Leberfeld

Corcord – A lot of good information has been leaked on Mark Sanchez.

“NFL Media’s Albert Breer reported late Wednesday that Sanchez has a torn labrum in his right (throwing) shoulder, according to a source informed of the diagnosis,” wrote Dan Hanzus for NFL.com. “Surgery is a possibility, but the quarterback still is exploring other options following his Wednesday visit with Dr. James Andrews.

“A person with direct knowledge of the injury told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that Sanchez’s current plan is to rehab the shoulder, though there is a thought surgery will happen eventually — either during the season or after.”

If he’s going to try to rehab the torn labrum, the Jets should probably put him in short-term IR, and let him rehab for a couple of months. Maybe in November, their QB situation could change, and they might need him.

And plus, based on what Rex Ryan said on Monday, Sanchez doesn’t sound that far away from a return.

“He’s still day-to-day with us,” Ryan said.
