New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez says his injured right calf feels good and he expects to be starting this week against the Houston Texans. “[My calf] feels good,” said Sanchez.
Sanchez injured his right calf after he was sacked in the third quarter of the Jets’ 26-20 overtime victory over the Browns. “After the trainers looked at it and determined it wasn’t a serious ligament injury or a knee injury, they were going to leave it up to me as far as pain tolerance [was concerned],” Sanchez said. “And once they left it up to me, I knew I was going to go back in.”
“The trainers did a great job,” Sanchez said. “I’m feeling a lot better already.”
Obviously it goes without saying, but the Jets without Sanchez would be disastrous. I’m sure even Backup QB Mark Brunell would agree on that one.
