Rex Ryan announced today that Mark Sanchez will start at QB vs the Detroit Lions in their first preseason game (Friday 8/9). Which means that you can expect Geno Smith to start the 2nd game at home on Saturday 8/17 vs the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Rex at news conf: Mark Sanchez will start @ DET on Friday in preseason opener. Geno Smith will follow. Rex isn't sure of the playtime split.
