Will Sanchez throw again in New York?

The New York Jets officially named rookie Geno Smith the Week 1 starter today, confirming what many around the league predicted. Mark Sanchez, who's started for New York for the better part of the last four years, will begin on the bench. Sanchez had what most considered a stronger preseason but was ruled out of Week 1 because of a bruised joint in his left shoulder. Though Sanchez would likely have started had he not sustained the injury, the word around the organization is that the Jets were in effect waiting for an opportunity to make the switch to their quarterback of the future.
