NEW YORK (AP) — Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has been placed on injured reserve-designated for return, meaning he will not be able to play for the next eight weeks.

Sanchez injured his right shoulder in the team’s third preseason game against the Giants. He has opted to try to rehabilitate the injury rather than have season-ending surgery.

The team announced the move on Saturday.

The exact nature of the injury has not been announced, but some published reports say it is a partially torn labrum.

Geno Smith has started the Jets’ first two games and it appears will continue to be under center while Sanchez is sidelined. Matt Simms and Brady Quinn are the other quarterbacks on the roster.
