New York Jets May Rely on Geno Smith Even More With Mark Sanchez Most Likely Having Surgery
It’s been a frustrating last couple of weeks for New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez as he was forced to miss Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a shoulder injury and now–it looks like the former first-round pick’s season is about to get even more frustrating.
Jets QB Mark Sanchez is likely to have surgery after Dr. James Andrews confirmed he has a labral tear in right shoulder, per league sources
— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) September 12, 2013
Unfortunately, it looks like Sanchez is heading for surgery after Dr. James Andrews took a look at the quarterback’s right shoulder and determined he had a labral tear–which is the last thing the Jets need at this point since this could be a season-ending surgery for Sanchez. As bad as it sounds, expectations were already at a low for the Jets as they not only had questions surrounding the quarterback position, but they didn’t do much to upgrade an offense that ranked near the bottom of the league last year during the offseason.
In other words–there could be even more pressure on Geno Smith over the rest of the season to perform well with a weak offense.
The rookie did look impressive against the Buccaneers in his first career NFL start, but Smith still has plenty of work to do if New York is going to have any shot at competing in the AFC East this season. To make things even more frustrating, just imagine how the Jets must be feeling knowing how much money they’re spending on Sanchez this season and how it’s most likely all going to waste.
