New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said that Quarterback Mark Sanchez, who received medical attention during the Jets 45-19 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, on his shoulder, is fine and will start Saturday against the New York Giants.

“I’m not sure if he’s having tests, I don’t believe he is,” Ryan said on a morning conference call with reporters. “I think he’s going to be just fine. It would be news to me if he had any tests done. I’m not sure, I haven’t even checked in with the trainers yet.”

The latest scare on Sanchez came on a third-quarter hit by Eagles defensive end Jason Babin.  Sanchez walked off the field, hunched over, grabbing his right shoulder.

Cameras showed Sanchez receiving a neck massage, and then taking some warm-up tosses before returning to the field for the next series.

As for Sanchez, he says he’s fine too.

“I just took a good hit,” he said.
