Jets' Sanchez broke nose, Cromartie bruised lung
Monday, September 26, 2011
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has a "minor break" in his nose but has no limitations and will play in New York's next game at Baltimore, while cornerback Antonio Cromartie has a bruised lung and ribs and his playing status is uncertain.
The team also announced Monday that tight end Jeff Cumberland is out for the season after tearing an Achilles' tendon in New York's 34-24 loss at Oakland at Sunday.
Sanchez was hit in the face by a Raiders defender in the third quarter of the game and finished by wearing a visor, which he will do for the next few weeks including next Sunday's game.
Cromartie was hurt in the second half, and taken to a hospital for further evaluation before flying home with the team.
