Mark Sanchez pops up on Jets injury report

Coach Rex Ryan says he won’t let anyone dictate how much Tim Tebow will play, but Mark Sanchez’s back could wind up making the decision for him.

Sanchez popped up on the Jets’ injury report for Wednesday’s practice with a low back injury. Sanchez was able to participate in practice fully and Ryan said he doesn’t know when the quarterback first started feeling the pain. Sanchez took some hits during Sunday’s loss to the Steelers, but the one that stands out was a blow around the head from linebacker Lawrence Timmons as opposed to anything directed at the back.

“That’s just tightness in his back,” Ryan said, via Brian Costello of the New York Post. “It’s really not a big deal but I’m sure it will be listed as a big deal.”

Given the fact that Sanchez practiced fully, it probably isn’t a big deal. The same can’t be said of cornerback Darrelle Revis‘ ongoing quest to get back on the field after a concussion. Revis has been cleared for physical activity, so he practiced in limited fashion on Wednesday but he still hasn’t been given the go-ahead to resume contact. Until that happens, the Jets will have to prepare as if they won’t have Revis back in the lineup against the Dolphins this week.

That’s probably the way to approach tight end Dustin Keller and linebacker Bryan Thomas as well. Both men missed the Steelers game with hamstring injuries and neither one practiced on Wednesday.

    Wait, he hasn’t been on the injury report before? Thought for sure that was the reason behind his terribleness.

    Nothing like a phantom injury to spice up the QB controversy.

    I guess that the kid just can’t handle a cougar.

    It’s only the Dolphins. The Jets should be able to beat them with Revis, Keller, and Thomas out. the only one they should be worried about is Sanchez, as they don’t have a good enough backup at his position.

    when you get hit helmet to helmet the way Timmons did him, it can make your little toe hurt

    Is there an injury designation for “hurt feelings” since it is only Week#3 the entire tri- state area is beginning to clamour for Tebow

    Sanchez (Q – Labia).

    Mark Sanchez is only effective against the Bills…otherwise terrible QB

    Sanchez has a back injury even though he never got hit in the back last Sunday?

    It seems God is pushing for more playing time for Tebow.

    everybody is effective against the bills!!!

    Broken ego…

  15. kev86 says: Sep 19, 2012 6:31 PM

    Another one of those fancy disguises to throw off the mighty fish. That Rex is brilliant.

  16. coughlinsredcheeks says: Sep 19, 2012 6:33 PM

    Bruised ego does not qualify as an injury

  17. bcfalcon says: Sep 19, 2012 6:49 PM

    Play Mcelroy, at least he can throw

  18. pfthatesmiami says: Sep 19, 2012 8:17 PM

    Sanchez better be ready to play, because the Jets wont be able to run on Miami at all.

  19. propertyofthebroncos says: Sep 19, 2012 9:46 PM

    Tebow wasn’t the least bit effective against the Bills last year and that had been the one game I knew we could win….so wrong, not possible when you don’t have a real qb.

    Rexy is a genious!!!!! Start the mystery injury now so that when he pulls Sancheezy for Tebowmaniac, he can still keep on harping about who the starting QB is without losing face.
