The Jets quarterback competition continues to take interesting turns.

The team announced this morning that Mark Sanchez will start Saturday's game against the Jaguars at MetLife Stadium.

Originally it was believed rookie Geno Smith would start this game after Sanchez started the team's first preseason game. But Smith suffered a sprained ankle against the Lions last Friday and has not looked good this week in practice bottoming out with a four-interception practice Wednesday.

Coach Rex Ryan said it is even possible that Smith won't play Saturday.
