Sanchez will sit for Jets
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Quarterback Mark Sanchez has been ruled out, as expected, for the New York Jets' game at Tampa Bay, along with cornerback Dwight Lowery and offensive lineman Robert Turner.
Sanchez sprained the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against Buffalo last Thursday. Coach Rex Ryan decided to sit him against the Buccaneers earlier this week. Kellen Clemens will start in his place.
Lowery has missed the last two games with a high right ankle sprain, while Turner was inactive against the Bills with an injured knee.
Right guard Alan Faneca and offensive lineman Wayne Hunter are both questionable with illnesses.
