The New York Jets have announced that Mark Sanchez will be the team’s starting quarterback against the Buffalo Bills in the Week 17 regular season finale on Sunday. Head coach Rex Ryan announced the move this morning.
Ryan also announced that Greg McElroy, who had started last week, is “definitely out” for the finale on Sunday against the Bills. He has a concussion, which was most likely suffered during one of his 11 sacks last weekend in a 24-14 loss against the San Diego Chargers.
Ryan did not say as to whether or not Tim Tebow would be active or if he would see the field. It was rumored that Tebow asked out of the wildcat package plays that the Jets used last Sunday against the Chargers, although Tebow says those reports are false. Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley was used in those sets instead.

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. Sanchez will probably be on a short leash and could be benched in favor of Tim Tebow if he gets off to a rough start. Sanchez actually had one of his better games of the season versus...
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.

It's a been a difficult year in New York for Tim Tebow and the Jets, and in a recent interview with ESPN, the polarizing QB tried to set the record straight on a few things.
Following his second consecutive disappointing season at the
helm of the New York Jets, coach Rex Ryan is reportedly telling anyone that
will listen that he’d be better off being fired if the team isn’t willing to “rectify
player personnel and coaching issues on offense,” reports Manish Mehta of the
New York Daily News.
The Daily News has learned that Ryan, the swashbuckling...
ESPN - The New York Jets' three-quarterback circus turned surreal Thursday morning, when Rex Ryan announced that Greg McElroy was being evaluated for a possible concussion and won't play Sunday against the Buffalo Bills in the season finale.
Bypassing Tim Tebow for the second time in as many weeks, Ryan said Mark Sanchez will start the game -- yet another blow to Tebow,...
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...
Just like the Jets, I have nothing to play for (or pick for) this week. My 1-2 record in Week 16 brought my yearly record to a stellar 15-31-2. I always thought this column would net some bad results, but even I didn’t think it would be this bad. Again, sorta like the Jets.
With just three days left until the Jets’ 2012 season mercifully comes to an end, the reports and rumors...
The New York Jets' season appears to be ending much the way it began - fit for a three-ring circus. But the main attractions may all soon be gone.
New York can cap its chaotic year on a positive note Sunday when it travels to Buffalo to play the Bills, whose quarterback and coaching situations are also in a state of unrest.
Sunday could prove to be the final game with coach...

an abdominal issue. (Given...
