NFL: Jets’ Sanchez says knee rehab is on schedule
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez said Wednesday his rehabilitation from offseason knee surgery is progressing on schedule but he can't say if he'll be ready to participate in minicamp in June.
Sanchez had a procedure on his left knee Feb. 17 to repair the patella ligament. At a news conference to discuss the Jets' and New York Giants' bid for the 2014 Super Bowl, Sanchez said he recently began jogging and playing catch.
He has no doubt he'll be ready for training camp in August, but he'll have to wait and see if he can take part in the team's minicamp in mid-June.
"That's the goal," he told reporters. "If it's in the cards, great; if not, then we'll just be smart about it and not rush anything and get ready for camp."
