'no big deal' Mark Sanchez calls broken nose!

NEW YORK (AP) -- Mark Sanchez has no concerns about his broken nose - even if it means a few less magazine covers for now. The Jets quarterback and recent GQ cover boy suffered what the team called a "minor break" in his nose Sunday, but he has already been cleared to practice this week without limitations and play in New York's next game at Baltimore. "It feels a lot better now, and we'll just worry about it after the season," Sanchez said Tuesday during his weekly radio appearance on 1050 ESPN Radio. "It's no big deal." It was the first time Sanchez broke his nose and said it "felt weird for... a little bit." He was hit in the face on a sack by Oakland's Kamerion Wimbley in the third quarter, had his nose reset on the sideline and finished by wearing a visor on his helmet, something he'll do for at least the next few games.

Sanchez acknowledged some mistakes he made in the Jets' 34-24 loss, including a costly interception after Jeremy Kerley had a long punt return that put New York deep in Oakland territory. "It wasn't a matter of preparation," he said of the defeat. And as far as Ryan's brash attitude, Sanchez added: "We wouldn't have it any other way, and that's the way it is. "Sanchez also brushed off comments former Jets linebacker Jason Taylor made to a Miami television station that he thinks Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne has more talent than his former New York teammate. "He's one of the best teammates I've ever had," Sanchez said of Taylor, who spent last season with the Jets. "He's saying the right thing. That's his teammate and that's his quarterback."
