While it’s not exactly on par with Tony Romo possibly playing tonight with an injured lung and ribs that require the use of a flak jacket made of Kevlar, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez will continue to play even though he suffered a slightly broken nose Sunday.

The team announced that bit of news Monday (via the Newark Star Ledger), and the Jets said that he won’t have any limitations and that he’ll wear a clear shield across his helmet to protect his schnozz (you really can’t tell by the photo on the right that his nose was broken, though there is clearly a red mark under his right eye).

"He took a shot in the face," coach Rex Ryan said following New York’s loss to the Raiders. "It wasn’t called, so it must have been in the shoulder."

The good news, though, is that he won’t have to wear any kind of body armor to keep him on the field.

In other Jets injury news, cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who needed help getting to the locker room late in the game, has bruised ribs and a bruised lung. Tight end Jeff Cumberland tore his Achilles tendon and will miss the rest of the season.

uh-oh. hot dog. Well, he probably can't wolf down a plato de nachos, either... what with a broken schnozz. the raiders certainly didn't give him a fat lip (but i can't really tell by the photo.. he may be hiding it)
Oh, Rex....turn me on fatman...with more gasbag promises of a SB victory. WFAN was loaded with LI whiners proclaiming "well, at least it was only 3 games into the season we got our a$$e$ handed to us." yeah, you'll get better. you just missed Mr. Mangold.
As for Cromartie? I told you last year the brain was already bruised, the body is just now catching up.
Crash n' burn, lamers.
