Sanchez set for surgery on left knee

Mark Sanchez has made up his mind: It's surgery for his left knee, as expected.

After soliciting second and third opinions, the Jets' franchise quarterback will have surgery in two or three weeks to strengthen a patella-stabilizing ligament, the Daily News has learned.

The operation, believed to be an arthroscopic procedure, will be performed by the Jets' doctors, led by orthopedist Ken Montgomery.

Sanchez's recovery time will be about two months, taking him until late April. He's expected to be ready for training camp in late July, but he will miss at least the first month of the offseason program.
