Jets QB Sanchez exits with injury

The New York Jets' quarterback competition took another turn during Saturday night's preseason game against the New York Giants.

After rookie quarterback Geno Smith threw three interceptions over three- plus quarters, Mark Sanchez appeared to hurt his right shoulder in the fourth.

Two drives into his evening, Sanchez took a big hit from Giants defensive tackle Marvin Austin and ended the play on the ground holding his shoulder.

Sanchez was taken for X-rays, but Jets coach Rex Ryan said after the game that he didn't know the results. Sanchez led the Jets to an easy 37-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars last week.

Smith, the rookie second-round pick from West Virginia, completed 16-of-30 passes for 199 yards and one touchdown. He sat last week with an ankle injury.
