Mark Sanchez to Start Preseason Opener Against the Detroit Lions

While reports have suggested that Geno Smith may ultimately wind up the New York Jet’s starting quarterback when the regular season begins, he won’t get the start against the Detroit Lions on Friday at Ford Field.

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, it will be Sanchez that gets the start.

We’ll have to wait to see if Smith’s time with the Jets starters still comes against the Lions starters on defense. That won’t happen if the Lions choose to play some of their defensive stars for just one series.
