Jets’ Sanchez leaves with apparent shoulder injury
Sanchez, in with the backup offense after Geno Smith played into the fourth quarter, rolled out under heavy pressure and completed a 23-yard pass to Mohamed Massaquoi before having his right shoulder slammed into by Marvin Austin with 5:40 left in the game.
Sanchez stayed on the turf for a few moments as the team’s trainers ran out to check on him. The quarterback got up on his own and flexed his right arm and hand as he headed to the sideline.
He took one practice throw on the sideline and appeared to shake his head, as if to say, “No.” Trainers took Sanchez’s jersey and pads off on the sideline, and then wrapped his shoulder in ice before taking him to the locker room.
The team had no immediate word on the nature or severity of Sanchez’s injury.
Sanchez appeared on his way to possibly being named the Jets‘ starting quarterback after a spotty performance by Smith, who threw three interceptions and stepped out of the end zone on a play for a safety.
Giants safety Stevie Brown sprained his left knee on an interception return late in the first quarter and had to be helped off the field.
Brown, who led the team with eight interceptions last season, tied for second in the NFL, appeared to be hurt when he was tackled after a 22-yard return. The four-year veteran could not put any weight on his leg.
The Giants also lost backup cornerback Jayron Hosley with a sprained ankle in the quarter.
Jets left guard Vladimir Ducasse was taken to the locker room late in the first quarter with what appeared to be an injury to his right foot or leg. He was replaced by rookie Brian Winter.
