Sanchez has disclocated shoulder, too

Sanchez AP

And now we know why the Jets were saying nothing about the status of quarterback Mark Sanchez’s shoulder.

As both Chris Mortensen and Jay Glazer have reported, Sanchez has a partially torn labrum in his right shoulder.  Per Glazer, the injury existed before the Sanchez was injured in the preseason game against the Giants.

Glazer says that the preseason injury also resulted in a shoulder dislocation, with the shoulder joint popping out and then popping back in.  Technically known as a subluxation, the movement of the joint can damage the soft tissues around the bones.

And so, once the Jets re-sign Brady Quinn, they’ll go back to having four quarterbacks on the roster.  They’ll need the other three for a while, given Sanchez’s shoulder.

It’s unclear how long he’ll be out.  As the photo posted in this story indicates, Sanchez was throwing the ball during pregame warmups at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.  But with his left hand.

Which is pretty much the only thing Sanchez has in common with Mandy Patinkin.  Other than a love of Broadway.

    Maybe he should play through the injury? His throws can’t get any worse.

    He was injured before the preseason game? Rex didn’t know that? Or he did know that and but him in anyway behind players trying to make the team to be the back ups to the back ups? Either he is trying to make sure Sanchez doesn’t play at all to save his job or he is trying to lose his job and make the Jets a better team after he gets fired by making sure Sanchez is gone as well. They both need to go regardless.

    Sanchez is probably the only player on the Jets who knows Mandy Patinkin is a guy.

    These people don’t know what the hell they are doing.

    Torn Labrum?
    I’ve had that. Until its repaired, he’ll be useless. Very painful and takes your shoulder strength.

    Why did it take so long for them to figure this out?
    Do the doctors and coaches not talk? It’s been 5 wks. They release Quinn for a lousy $715k. Now they’re stuck with 2 quarterbacks who have never thrown in the NFL before! Precious…

    I’m sure your Mandy Patinkin joke won’t fly over too many heads.

    No, both Mandy and Sanchez are not people I want playing QB for me.

    Disclocated? Really.Confusion setting in…again…

    Well Jets fans, look at the bright side-not like he could be worse throwing with his left hand.

    Seriously though, torn labrum-he’s useless until it’s repaired. Why not put him on the 6 game IR?

    Any more injuries and the Jets will have to have Sunday in the Park with Jeff George.

  13. f1restarter says: Sep 8, 2013 1:57 PM

    And to think, all this time Sanchez was actually a left handed QB throwing with the wrong hand. The pieces are finally falling into place.

    I have $20 that says he played with labrum injury most of last season.

    Sanchise lose the headband you look like a queen waiting to be picked for the prom

  16. tyk55 says: Sep 8, 2013 7:16 PM

    I hope the Jets lose every game they play from now own. After what they did to Tim Tebow I`d say they deserve too.

    Matt Simms will lead this team to the playoffs.

    geno and the jets are 1-0.

    I’d cut SANCHISE just for the headband look !! Every time the cameras were on him he was fixing his hair and the band !! He looks a little like he might play for both teams if you get my drift..hahaha. Pretty boy looks more concerned with looking good then learning how to be an NFL QB. What a wasted draft pick, and a waste of money!! His ass would have been cut if it wasn’t for Mikey T’s big blunder. If I were Rex, I’d cut ties with this metrosexual.
