NEW YORK (AP) - Rex Ryan is sticking with Mark Sanchez as the New York Jets' starting quarterback.
The team has announced Wednesday morning that Sanchez, benched last Sunday against Arizona, will get the start over Greg McElroy and Tim Tebow when the Jets play the Jaguars at Jacksonville.
Sanchez was pulled late in the third quarter, and McElroy came in and led the Jets to the only touchdown of the game on his first NFL drive and helped New York to a 7-6 victory. Sanchez was 10 of 21 for 97 yards and three interceptions, while McElroy was 5 of 7 for 29 yards.
Ryan, who will address reporters later Wednesday, said Monday that he needed ``a little more time'' to consult with his staff before making the decision for this week.
