NFL.comâ€™s Ian Rapoport reports that New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez plans to have season-ending surgery on his torn right labrum.
Rapoport mentions that is still hoping to delay the procedure anotherÂ week or two in the hope that he could still rehab the injury and prevent surgery.
Rapoport adds thatÂ Sanchez met with Dr. James Andrews Monday.
He would miss anywhere from four-six months if he were to undergo surgery.
The Jets placed Sanchez on short-term injured reserve with the designation return a few weeks ago. Sanchez is an obvious release candidate following the season, so Iâ€™m sure he would like to have a shot at boasting his stock even slightly at some point later in the season.
Rookie QB Geno Smith has had his fair share of ups and downs this season, but the fact that heâ€™s already thrown eight interceptions to go along with three lost fumbles is quite concerning. If Sanchez is able to return at some point, you would have to think the Jets would at least consider playing him, depending on how Smith is doing by then.
