The game Sunday against the New York Jets will be a good guage of where the Jacksonville Jaguars are at, but they might get a break with the Jets offense. Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez was tested for a concussion after the Jets Sunday night victory over the Dallas Cowboys, where Sanchez passed for 335 yards and 2 touchdowns. Sanchez was sacked 4 times and hit 5 times, being harassed by outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware all night long. Rich Cimini of reported that Sanchez appeared groggy when talking to the media after the game, and that he looked away from bright lights. Cimini also said that Sanchez also spent an inordinate amount of time with the Jets medical trainers in the training room.

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was checked after the game for a concussion.

He told ESPN Radio, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, that Sanchez underwent "some baseline tests" after the game. Sanchez says he has no concussion.

 Those sound like the signs of a concussion, but it doesn't necessarily mean Sanchez had one. He reportedly "passed", but it will be something to look for on the injury report for the Jets this week. While Sanchez isn't a world beater at quarterback, he's still a difference maker for the Jets. If Sanchez can't go... former Jaguars quarterback Mark Brunell would likely be the starter. Wouldn't that be fun?
