Mark Sanchez will play despite broken nose

M. Sanchez broke his nose against Oakland, but he won't miss any time (US Presswire).Posted by Josh Katzowitz

While it’s not exactly on par with Tony Romo possibly playing tonight with an injured lung and ribs that require the use of a flak jacket made of Kevlar, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez will continue to play even though he suffered a slightly broken nose Sunday.

The team announced that bit of news Monday (via the Newark Star Ledger), and the Jets said that he won’t have any limitations and that he’ll wear a clear shield across his helmet to protect his schnozz (you really can’t tell by the photo on the right that his nose was broken, though there is clearly a red mark under his right eye).

"He took a shot in the face," coach Rex Ryan said following New York’s loss to the Raiders. "It wasn’t called, so it must have been in the shoulder."

The good news, though, is that he won’t have to wear any kind of body armor to keep him on the field.

In other Jets injury news, cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who needed help getting to the locker room late in the game, has bruised ribs and a bruised lung. Tight end Jeff Cumberland tore his Achilles tendon and will miss the rest of the season.

Gotta read the fine print, penalties are only called if someone goes near Tom Brady or Peyton Manning.  In fact, several flags had to be picked up in the Colts game the past few weeks as officials realized Peyton Manning is no longer playing.

The NFL is a fucking joke.  Either call these penalties for every QB or scrap them altogether.  I am sick of watching Ben, Vick and Sanchez get plastered and a flag nowhere in sight, but someone breathes Brady's way after 7 seconds of his line holding the defense, he throws an incomplete pass and falls down, demands a flag, and we see laundry all over the field.  Give me a fucking break.

I just listed three different QBs and three different teams, so I don't want to hear that I am just picking on those two QBs because they're "not on my team."  It's so stupid.

Missing Mangold (the best center in the game) was huge, 5 or 6 of your 1st downs came off penalties, Cromartie's muffed kickoff, Sanchez's stupid int early......COME ON SON. We meet again the outcome would be different trust that. you guys arent that bad of a football team but you needed all those breaks to beat us.

Raiders are not better than the Jets! They might of been this past Sunday but thats it. You guys arent going anywhere Big Al knows it and deep down so do you...enjoy that top 10 pick in the draft again. Jets always playdown to their opponents, we should of smoked you guys unfortunately it didnt happen. We've gone into Oakland like 6 times in a row now and the Jets notoriously suck on the west coast. I would love for you guys to make the playoffs so we could get another shot at you guys but we all know thats not gonna happen....

Jimmy Bones, are you kidding me?  Play to who's level?  The Raiders ran all over the Jets and brutalized them.  I don't disrespect the Jets and do consider them a top 10 team, but so are the Raiders.  You say that the Jets are better than 80% of the League; that may be an accurate statement, but unfortunately for you and the Jets, the Raiders are in that 20% that kicked their asses Sunday.
