NEW YORK – The New York Jets say quarterback Mark Sanchez is "day-to-day" with an injured right shoulder that will sideline him for the preseason finale against Philadelphia on Thursday night.
The team did not announce the nature or severity of the injury, suffered in the Jets' 24-21 overtime victory over the Giants on Saturday night. Sanchez had an X-ray after the game on the shoulder, which apparently revealed no fractures, and an MRI exam Sunday to determine if there's any damage. The Jets' announcement indicated that Sanchez likely does not have a season-ending injury.
Sanchez, who appeared in good shape to beat out rookie Geno Smith for the starting job, left late in the fourth quarter when he took a hard hit in the shoulder from Marvin Austin after throwing a pass.
