The Sad Plight of Mark Sanchez
Adam Schefter reporting that Mark Sanchez has a labral tear in his throwing shoulder, which requires surgery by Dr. Andrews and will put him out for the season.
To me, the circumstances remind me a lot of Kyle Boller's last year in Baltimore...We had just drafted Flacco, but Boller and Troy Smith were fighting out for who got to keep the spot warm for Flacco. Boller gets injured in a preseason game (coincidentally, a shoulder joint injury, at the time Harbaugh said it was either a torn labrum or a tear in the "connection to the biceps") and is IR'd, allowing Flacco to get the job early(Troy Smith also out with tonsilitis). After that, he is summarily sent packing out of town.
I'm not sure the cap rammifications of releasing Sanchez after this year, but I'd imagine unless Geno Smith outright TANKS worse than Ryan Leaf this year, he's the guy going forward. Find it hard to see them bringing Sanchez back for another year to hold a clipboard.
