After the Jets squeaked by the Cowboys on Sunday night, it appeared that Mark Sanchez might be suffering from a concussion. At least that’s what it looked like to the people standing around him in the minutes following the game’s end.
As ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini writes, Sanchez, while speaking to reporters after the game, appeared groggy, and the few times a TV camera light was shined in his face, Sanchez turned away in mid-sentence.
He was asked if he had a concussion but said he was fine. But team doctors also were concerned enough to give him a baseline concussion test, and after examining him, they said he was good to go. That’s the scoop Sanchez gave to ESPN 1050 today.
“They checked my baseline tests and compared it to my balance test,” Sanchez said. “I feel good.”
The radio hosts asked him if he was concerned he had suffered a head injury, and Sanchez said, “No, I don’t think so. I just think they were being really cautious.”
Which obviously is what the team doctors should be doing. And now that Sanchez has been cleared, he can go back to practicing and playing with the Jets and hopping into a whirlpool for a quick photo shoot with GQ without having to worry about any potential lingering head injuries.
