07:16 AM ET 09.09 | Despite an earlier report to the contrary, Jets backup Mark Sanchez may not have a more serious labrum injury, after all. Shortly before Geno Smith was named the team's starter, word leaked out that Sanchez' injury was "more significant" than they thought. Some reports indicate that Sanchez has a torn labrum, however CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports the Jets don't believe that's the case. Sanchez warmed up on Sunday in advance of the Buccaneers throwing left-handed, which certainly surprised some folks. ... Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that Sanchez "dislocated his shoulder" when he was hit by Austin. Additionally, doctors "popped it back in socket" and he now has a "shoulder subluxation" and cannot play unless the shoulder stays in socket. That basically boils down to Sanchez having a dislocation plus an already partially torn labrum. La Canfora reports that Sanchez will seek a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews.

The Jets don't believe his labrum is a problem, but they're hoping it is.

He won't see the field this season.

With Geno Smith's performance yesterday, Sanchez has become totally irrelevant. Nice job by the rookie - looked cool under pressure. If he stays healthy, Sanchez might not play a down.

Geno answered all questions about who the starter should be. He's got good feet, good arm and looked calm all day. Sanchez is done in NY.

This article seems like a bunch of "it is but it isn't", "we know but we don't know".

It's the type of experience Mark Sanchez never learned from even by playing.

I'll give him a second opinion for free. He sucks.

Third opinion? OK, his mother dresses him funny.

Sanchez looks like the bearded lady from the circus.

Anything that gives the Jets an excuse to keep Sanchez on the sidelines while Geno gains experience on the field is not a problem.

I wonder will he still wear that hairbow on the sidelines...

I think this is Smith's job to lose.

We saw Geno's toughness in preseason - Sanchez will play, if he's healthy.

September 9, 2013  09:35 AM ET

Wow... He said the Jets back up Mark Sanchez... He's done in NY.

I would agree. He did a good job yesterday. He'll have good days and bad, but I think he's shown enough that you stick with him for a while.

It is now. Of course, the Curse of the Jets says that his performance will be marginal, and it won't be a clear choice once Sanchez is "healthy."
