To nobody’s surprise, Jets coach Rex Ryan officially named Mark Sanchez as the starter for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Sanchez, who suffered a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee two weeks ago, shared first-team practice reps with Kellen Clemens on Wednesday and Thursday before taking all the snaps Friday.
“Mark will start,” Ryan said Friday. “No great surprise to anybody."
Sanchez will wear two knee braces.
