Sanchez Opts For Surgery

QB Mark Sanchez has decided to have surgery on his left knee and is expected to be ready for training camp. The Jets said earlier today that the operation will happen in the next few weeks. The surgery, believed to be arthroscopic in nature, will strengthen the patella-stabilizing ligament. Jets orthopedist Ken Montgomery will perform the surgery. Sanchez originally injured his left knee while playing at USC.

Sanchez, who is expected to be sidelined for two months, will miss a portion of the team’s offseason conditioning program in March. He may also miss the Organized Team Activities (OTAs) in early May.

Sanchez won't need any procedures on the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, which he sprained earlier this season. He had both knees examined by team doctors this week and also was evaluated last week by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala.

Last week, general manager Mike Tannenbaum said that the quarterback would be ready before the start of training camp in July.
