Sanchez Placed on Injured Reserve with Designation to Return

The team announced this morning that quarterback Mark Sanchez has been placed on the short term injured reserve list.

Sanchez, who continues to rehabilitate his shoulder injury, will be eligible to return to practice after six weeks but cannot return to the active roster until eight weeks from today.

Barring any changes, the Jets will get a long look at Geno Smith with Matt Simms and Brady Quinn serving as his back-ups.
