Mark Sanchez recovering from knee surgery

2/1/2014

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, who missed the entire season because of surgery on his right shoulder, also is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, according to a league source.

The surgery was described as a "clean up," and is not expected to affect his availability for the offseason.

General manager John Idzik said the team is monitoring Sanchez's shoulder and knee rehabs. Idzik declined to speculate on Sanchez's future with the team, saying, "We'll let it play out."

Sanchez, who has a $13.1 million cap charge, is due a $2 million roster bonus in late March. The Jets are expected to part ways with their former starter.
