    McElroy has concussion, Sanchez to start for Jets

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Rex Ryan stepped to the podium, looked out at the cameras and opened his news conference with a warning.

    ''You're not going to believe this one,'' the New York Jets coach declared without any hint of a smile.

    In what has been a bizarre season, the Jets' wacky quarterback situation took yet another twist. Greg McElroy has a concussion - which he didn't reveal until Thursday - and will be replaced by Mark Sanchez as the starting quarterback in the season finale at Buffalo on Sunday.

    ''We've come to find out that Greg wasn't exactly truthful with our training staff after the game,'' said Ryan, who acknowledged he was ''stunned'' to hear the news. ''He never disclosed that he had symptoms after the game to our trainers. Right now, he's being evaluated for a concussion.''

    McElroy, preparing to make his second NFL start in place of the benched Sanchez, was lifting weights Thursday morning and started experiencing headaches, Ryan said. McElroy 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.

    McElroy and head trainer John Mellody then went to Ryan to tell the coach the news. Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano said he was ''pretty silent'' when he found out a few minutes after Ryan.

    ''It's another bump in the road here,'' Sparano said, ''and it's something we've become a little accustomed to dealing with.''

    It's official, Forbes Magazine just named "Being the Jets Quarterback" as the world's worst job.

    Hopefully Sanchez will be benched by halftime and Tebow wins the game for them. That'd be a great way to end the season for the Jets.

    I hope Sanchez has a great game. That would be a perfect way for the Jets to end their season.

    If that happens they'd probably give him another contract extension, I'm thinking 8 years $120 million, lol

    I'm sure they would have to give him Drew Brees per year type money.
