Tebow bypassed again: Sanchez to start for Jets

Greg McElroy has a concussion

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – Greg McElroy has a concussion and will be replaced by Mark Sanchez as the New York Jets’ starting quarterback in the season finale at Buffalo on Sunday.

Coach Rex Ryan said Thursday that McElroy, preparing to make his second NFL start in place of the benched Sanchez, was lifting weights and had headaches. He went to the team’s training staff and then revealed he was suffering concussion-like symptoms after being sacked 11 times in the Jets’ 27-17 loss to San Diego last Sunday.

Ryan said he chose to start Sanchez over Tim Tebow because the team has just two practices and a walkthrough to prepare before the game, and he feels “more comfortable” with Sanchez.

Sanchez was benched after turning the ball over five times at Tennessee on Dec. 17.
