Jets' Sanchez says broken nose 'no big deal'
Tuesday, September 27, 2011
NEW YORK (AP) -- Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez says his broken nose is "no big deal" and is feeling a lot better a few days after being injured in a loss to the Oakland Raiders.
Sanchez suffered what the team called a "minor break" in his nose Sunday, but will play in New York's next game at Baltimore. He was hit in the face on a sack by Oakland's Kamerion Wimbley in the third quarter and finished by wearing a visor, something he'll do for at least the next few games.
The GQ magazine cover boy says during his weekly radio appearance on 1050 ESPN Radio in New York that he isn't concerned about the cosmetic ramifications of the injury, adding, "I'll break my nose every game as long as we're going to win."
