Report: Sanchez has a PCL sprain

Five days ago, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez suffered a left knee injury while being tackled.

Last night, he injured his right knee while diving forward against the Bills, contradicting the efforts of head coach Rex Ryan to teach Sanchez how to slide.

Sanchez banged his previously healthy knee on the ground, and Adam Schefter of ESPN now reports that Sanchez has a sprained PCL.

Per Schefter, Sanchez will be available to play on December 13 at Tampa, if he can tolerate the pain.

The degree of the sprain isn’t known.  It’s not uncommon for players to perform with injured PCLs, since the ligament isn’t as critical to the operation of the joint as the ACL and the MCL.

And if Sanchez doesn’t start sliding, Ryan could injure his own knee while swinging a foot toward Sanchez’s ass.

    wait a GD minute. it’s football and he is a football player. he made the right play. injuries are part of the game.
    this kid is not Peyton Manning, Brett Favre or Tom Brady yet so lets not put him in Canton yet. he is not a franchise yet.

    Is that supposed to be one of those cat “Iz likes cheezzzburger” type things?

    Hines ward will NOT approve if Sanchez misses a game.

    but Later Hines will say he was only goofing on him.

    ROFL! As if the Braylon Edwards attempt at catching a pass with his face mask wasn’t enough, we have Millen’s classic comments throughout the game, and now this little gem.
    “Ryan could injures his own knee while swinging a foot toward Sanchez’s ass.”
    It’s a good thing the jokes are great, because the game itself was a snoozer.

    That would be the “Sanchazz”.
    Thank you. Good day.

    The Jets have little chance to win the Super Bowl without Sanchez and no chance to win it with him. Herm’s operation looks like a Mensa convention compared to the gathering of dipshits they have now.

    HEY JETS FANS! Must be Mangini’s fault, huh????

    Love to see that. Rex can’t reach his own ass, let alone kick someone else’s.
    Hilarious how they are mismanaging this kid. I see another Joey Harrington in the making here. Kis comes out of college after 1 year as a starter… and a year earlier than he should.
    Jets throw money at him and don’t give him time to develop. And oh by the way, let’s denut him every week with stories about him snacking on sideline, giving him a green, yellow, red card, and hiring someone to teach him how to slide.
    When he grows a pair – he’ll tell Rex “I’ll start sliding when you lose 50 lbs. Both are pretty important to our health. “

    He’s in a close game, the team still has a shot at the playoffs (okay, still a long shot), so he dives for the first down instead of sliding. Anyone who thinks that’s a bad play needs to go follow another sport. You play to win the game people!

    This is pro football. Other quarterbacks play with much more significant injuries — and they do it all the time (a few who have played through injuries recently –E. Manning, Stafford, Hasselbeck, Rivers, Mcnab). It appears that 16 college games did not give the Jets enough background information on Sanchez and he may be to soft for the NFL.
