Right now, no surgery is planned for QB Mark Sanchez, I’m told. He played with a pinched nerve in his neck/right shoulder area for the final six games. Statistically, his efficiency on deep passes declined over the final six games, possibly due to the “burner.” Sanchez did have an MRI at some point, and the course of treatment for now is rest. — Rich Cimini, ESPN NY
Good News for Sanchez is he will not require surgery on his neck or shoulder this offseason and that’s pretty big news for Sanchez and for the Jets. We know what happened the last time a QB had surgery on his throwing shoulder. So thank goodness all he needs is rest. Surgery also would have set him back with his learning curve and quite frankly, he can’t afford a set back at this pivitol time in his career. He needs rest then he needs to get back on the practice field ASAP. September will be here before you know it.
