Coach Rex Ryan let the cat out of the bag during an 8:00 a.m. team meeting Wednesday, announcing that Mark Sanchez would get the start at QB Sunday vs the Jaguars.
The move means that Florida fans hoping to see their local hero Tim Tebow finally get a start at EverBank Field will be sadly disappointed.
Sanchez was benched for third-stringer Greg McElroy after throwing three interceptions against the Cardinals last Sunday, and watched as McElroy led the team on the Jets only TD drive in the 7-6 win.
Tebow is recovering from fractured ribs and hasn’t been much of a factor all season. Reports say he might be inactive Sunday vs the Jaguars.
