Shoulder Injury Is Hampering Sanchez, Unlikely To Participate In Throwing Drills
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, dealing with a shoulder injury, is at practice riding a stationary bike but unlikely to participate in any throwing drills.
During the 30-minute window that reporters are allowed to watch, Sanchez was among a group off to the side of the practice field and had his right arm at his side as he pedaled.
The Jets announced Sunday that Sanchez is “day-to-day” with an injured shoulder that will sideline him for the team’s preseason finale against Philadelphia on Thursday night.
Sanchez, who appeared in good shape to beat out rookie Geno Smith for the starting job, was hurt late in the fourth quarter when he took a hard hit in the shoulder from Giants defensive lineman Marvin Austin after he completed a pass.
