Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez participated fully in 11-on-11 drills for the first time this offseason during the Jets’ organized team activities on Tuesday, a positive sign that his recovery from knee surgery is going off without a hitch.
Although members of the media weren’t in attendance and the Jets are tight-lipped about injuries, the team did confirm that Sanchez was participating in team drills, and one unnamed Jet told ESPNNewYork.com that Sanchez looked good.
“He looked really well, sharp,” the player said. “Made some nice throws against our defense.”
Sanchez has been saying all offseason that he expects to be 100 percent before training camp, and Jets coach Rex Ryan said last month that Sanchez is ahead of schedule.
