NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was a full participant in practice Tuesday, as expected, despite an injury that he said was “similar” to the one that landed him on the injury report a few weeks ago.

Sanchez was hurt Sunday when he was hit by Philadelphia’s Jason Babin in the third quarter of the Jets’ 45-19 loss.

“It’s just been a little sore, and I’ve taken some good shots,” Sanchez said. “It’s just part of the game and you just keep going.”

Sanchez took all but a few snaps Tuesday as the team prepares for its showdown with its New York-area rivals. Coach Rex Ryan said Sanchez might have had a “stinger” or a “burner,” but wasn’t sure — and the quarterback also said he was uncertain.

Sanchez has taken some hard hits throughout this season, but the one Sunday in which he was injured didn’t appear to be violent.

“Maybe on the fall,” Sanchez said. “Just a little sore. He might’ve gotten me in the right spot. I don’t know.”

Running back Joe McKnight, the NFL’s leading kick returner, sat out with a separated right shoulder, and his status for the game Saturday was uncertain. He is also still recovering from a hyperextended elbow on the same arm.

Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (illness) and right guard Brandon Moore (hip) also didn’t practice. For Moore, who had offseason hip surgery, the plan is to rest on the first day of practice, do a little more the next day and be a full participant for the final session — just as he did last week.

Defensive back Marquice Cole, safety Eric Smith and defensive lineman Mike DeVito were all limited with knee ailments.
