Jets QB Sanchez has season-ending shoulder surgery
Sanchez was in a tight competition with Smith for the starting job this summer before he was injured against the Giants when he took a hard shot to his shoulder from Marvin Austin. The injury occurred in the fourth quarter with mostly backups in the game, and coach Rex Ryan has taken a lot of criticism for putting the quarterback in that position.
Many speculated that, after a poor showing by Smith in that game, Sanchez had wrapped up the starting job after a solid preseason. Ryan disagreed with that notion, saying a decision on the starter had not been determined at that point.
Smith has been up and down in his first five NFL starts, but led the team to a 30-28 victory on Monday night at Atlanta with a terrific performance. Many believe Smith is the future of the franchise _ meaning Sanchez has seen his likely final days as a starter with the Jets.
Still, even knowing that he was to undergo surgery the next day and his status with the team beyond this season unclear, Sanchez pumped his fist and yelled in celebration as Nick Folk kicked the winning field goal to beat the Falcons on Monday night. Smith has often spoke highly of how Sanchez handled himself during the training camp competition, and how he has helped him adjust to playing in the NFL.
