Jets' Smith to start, Sanchez to get 2nd opinion

Rookie Geno Smith will get his second start for the New York Jets, as expected, when the team plays at New England on Thursday night. 

Coach Rex Ryan says Monday that Smith, coming off an 18-17 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday, will play against the Patriots after he was mostly solid in his NFL debut.

Ryan adds that Mark Sanchez, sidelined with a shoulder injury, will not play and the quarterback and the team are seeking a second medical opinion. According to published reports, Sanchez will meet with Dr. James Andrews at some point this week to get further evaluation.

Ryan says Sanchez hasn't had a setback with the injury, but with a short week, it makes sense for him to get another look at the shoulder.
