Mark Sanchez gets the start against Bears

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is active for Sunday’s game despite torn cartilage in his right (throwing) shoulder. He will start against the Bears.

Inactive for the Jets: Tight end Jeff Cumberland, linebacker Jamaal Westerman, offensive tackle Damien Woody, defensive end Trevor Pryce, defensive tackles Jarron Gilbert and Matt Kroul, and safety Eric Smith.

The Jets’ third quarterback is Kellen Clemens, so Mark Brunell will get the call if Sanchez aggravates his injury.

The Bears’ inactives are offensive linemen Herman Johnson and Edwin Williams, defensive tackle Marcus Harrison, tight end Desmond Clark, defensive backs Craig Steltz and Joshua Moore, and running back Kahlil Bell.

Caleb Hanie is the Bears’ third quarterback. ┬áLinebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa is active for the first time in several weeks, but will play as a reserve behind Nick Roach.

    With a weak arm to begin with, and now a shoulder injury, I can see the Bears stacking the box all game.

    And this is how QB’s experience permanent injury. Play Brunell and let your FUTURE heal up.

    Sadly, the Jets won’t perform well anyway.

    The only thing that will help them is that the opposing QB is Jay Cutler, the most schizo QB in NFL history.

    Rex is going to have a short leash on him though

    Have the Bears played anybody this year that has a starting QB playing without injury?

    In defense of Mark Sanchise, I wonder if he has been hurt all season, because his deep ball looks like something thrown in College.

    @tomlovestroy…you can only play who and when someone is on the schedule, if they’re any good it won’t matter in a couple of weeks…if they’re not, they’ll be home with you watching.

    The recent “foot fetish” drama can only mean one thing for the ’86 Mets (i.e., the NY Jets) . . . a victory against the Bears >> .

    The more drama the more the Jets like it.
