Rex Ryan has a way with words, doesn’t he?
The Jets announced Tuesday that Mark Sanchez had undergone season-ending shoulder surgery, an injury he suffered when Ryan inexplicably had his starting QB enter a preseason game in the fourth quarter.
On Wednesday Ryan was asked about Sanchez, and provided this gem of of a quote, according to NFL.com:
“We’re acting like he’s dead. Mark Sanchez is not dead,” Ryan said. “Sanchez is going to be 100 percent healthy, guys. It’s not like his career’s over. He’s going to play again.”
Well that’s some good news for Sanchez, who reportedly yelled at Jets GM John Idzik moments after he suffered his injury.
So will Sanchez ever play for the Jets again? Ryan addressed that, too (kind of, but not really):
“I don’t want to get into that,” he replied, later adding. “Whether he’s here or whatever, our thing is doing what’s best for Mark, which would be to get him healthy.”
Doing what’s best for Mark? Like maybe not putting him during the fourth quarter of preseason game?
What a heart-warming story.
