The Jets quarterback was in Birmingham, Alabama Wednesday to have his knee looked at by Dr. James Andrews.
We assumed it was Sanchez’s right knee that was the problem; he missed a game in early December because of an injury against the Bills. Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum said they looked at both knees.
Sanchez is expected to see a second or third opinion before deciding how to proceed. A decision will be made soon, and Tannenbaum says Sanchez “will be ready well before [training] camp.”
UPDATE: Manish Mehta of the Newark Star-Ledger reports the surgery would be on Sanchez’s left knee, which was originally hurt at USC. It would knock Sanchez out for two months. He’ll make a decision within one week.
