Mark Sanchez: Will be back at quarterback for the New York Jets on Sunday
Mark Sanchez will regain his starting spot at quarterback for the New York Jets' season finale against the Buffalo Bills after Greg McElroy was ruled out with a possible concussion.
McElroy complained of concussion-like symptoms after being sacked 11 times in the Jets' 27-17 defeat to the San Diego Chargers last Sunday.
Sanchez had been benched in the midst of a miserable season in which he has thrown 13 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
But he will return to his position under centre for the last game of the season, the Jets having already been eliminated from play-off contention.
The switch back to Sanchez means Tim Tebow has been denied a chance to start again, with head coach Rex Ryan saying he feels "more comfortable" with Sanchez given the team has just two practices and a walkthrough before the game on Sunday.
Michael Vick will also return as the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles after rookie signal caller Nick Foles suffered a broken hand.
Vick's future in Philadelphia is far from certain and the clash with the New York Giants on Sunday could be his last for the organisation.
