The New York Jets' wacky quarterback situation took yet another twist.
Greg McElroy has a concussion - which he didn't reveal until Thursday - and will be replaced by Mark Sanchez as the New York Jets' starting quarterback in the season finale at Buffalo on Sunday.
Coach Rex Ryan walked into his news conference before practice, took the podium and opened with: ''You're not going to believe this.''
McElroy, preparing to make his second NFL start in place of the benched Sanchez, was lifting weights Thursday morning and started experiencing headaches, Ryan said. McElroy went to the team's training staff and then revealed he was suffering concussion-like symptoms after being sacked 11 times in the Jets' 27-17 loss to San Diego last Sunday.
McElroy and head trainer John Mellody then went to Ryan to tell the coach the news.
''We come to find out that Greg wasn't exactly truthful with our training staff after the game,'' said...

Mark Sanchez will get the start at quarterback Sunday in the Jets' season finale against Buffalo.Fantasy Spin:It's pretty much by default as Greg McElroy has been ruled out with a concussion.

What better way for the New York Jets to end their season than to start the quarterback who was once the starter, then got benched, then started again, then got benched again and is now preparing to be under center to close out the year. Greg McElroy is still suffering from concussion-like symptoms, which means Mark Sanchez is starting against the Buffalo Bills this weekend.
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan has informed quarterback Mark Sanchez that he’ll start in the season finale.
The reason Sanchez is getting the start is because Greg McElroy is currently being evaluated for a concussion. Of course Tim Tebow isn’t happy at all about this.
Without the circus that is the Jets, I wouldn’t be able to laugh as much I have been.

With all the importance places on head injuries and concussions in sports over the past few years, all the safety measures in the world don’t help if players aren’t honest about their suffering.

Rex Ryan’s bravado may have finally got the best of him. The New York Jets head coach has always been extremely confident, in fact, cocky. According to those in the know, if team owner won’t make the changes Rex wants, he should fire Rex. See, Rex isn’t stupid, either. He didn’t say my way or [...]
So let me get this straight. We can talk till we are blue in the face about the future of Mark Sanchez. Talk ad nauseum about the unfair treatment of Tim Tebow. Ask a thousand times about where Michael Vick is going to be taking snaps, and dub a one game wonder in Matt Flynn the most sought after quarterback going into the 2013 offseason. But we don't have time to bring up...
