Jets throw a light load at rookie QB Sanchez

New York Daily News - [Full Article]

Say this for the Jets: They're not rushing Mark Sanchez.
After three days of training camp at SUNY-Cortland, the rookie quarterback has taken only a few practice reps with the starting offense - all in Sunday's morning session. But that will change soon, according to Rex Ryan.
"He'll get more reps with the ones as we go on," Ryan said. "I think you see the guy has a lot of talent, and he makes some throws that are hard to make ... That's one of the reasons we jumped up and tried to go get him in the draft."
After five practices, the quarterback competition between Sanchez and Kellen Clemens is a virtual dead heat. Because of his edge in experience, Clemens should look better than Sanchez at this stage, but that hasn't happened. He threw two more interceptions yesterday (both under pressure on blitzes), bringing his total to five. Sanchez has two.
