The Jets quarterback situation is garnering so much attention that you’d think Tim Tebow was still on the roster.
Mark Sanchez hurt his throwing shoulder last week, which probably gives rookie Geno Smith the starting nod by default. However, Smith hasn’t been told as much yet, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.
Also, the Jets signed Graham Harrell a few days ago, only to cut him today. That was to make room for Brady Quinn. Remember him?
But the biggest news in all of this is that Mark Sanchez’s shoulder is probably worse than we are all being led to believe. He could possibly be out a month. If that’s the case, I’m not sure it makes sense for him ever to assume the starting role again. The team seems as if they’d like to wash their hands of Sanchez and maybe this will be their excuse.
Geno Smith says he hasn’t been given official word that he’s starting. Sanchez injury worse than team letting on, could miss a month.
