FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — After leading the New York Jets to an 18-17 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday, Rex Ryan and the Jets announced that rookie Geno Smith will get his second start when the team plays at New England on Thursday night.
Ryan adds that Mark Sanchez, sidelined with a shoulder injury, will not play and the quarterback and the team are seeking a second medical opinion. According to published reports, Sanchez will meet with Dr. James Andrews at some point this week to get further evaluation.
Ryan says Sanchez hasn’t had a setback with the injury, but with a short week, it makes sense for him to get another look at the shoulder.
