Irate Sanchez screamed at Jets GM

Say what you will about the Mark Sanchez's tenure in New York, but he generally took the the high road publicly. [Sanchez], who underwent shoulder surgery Tuesday, has said all the right things about the unfortunate injury that wiped out his season. But the Jets quarterback's emotions came out in a behind-the-scenes fit in the immediate aftermath of being hurt in the fourth quarter of a preseason game against the Giants. Sanchez shouted at general manager John Idzik in the trainer's room after the game, according to witnesses. Sanchez was furious the team put him in the game when it did -- in the waning minutes of a meaningless contest behind a second-string offensive line. There has been tension between the organization and Sanchez since then, according to sources. (New York Post) Comment

Malzahn undecided on QB choice

Though perhaps not as pressing considering the opponent, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn still has a decision to make before the tigers face Western Carolina this Saturday. [Nick Marshall] injured his knee late in the game against Ole Miss, an injury that he thought would not be that serious at the time. For most of the week, Marshall has been at practice, but he was rested Sunday, and Malzahn was asked whether or not his starter for the first five games would play if he was less than 100 percent on Saturday. "We'll make that decision probably [Thursday] or Friday." ... Malzahn was also asked if there was a chance that Marshall might not play on Saturday. "I would say there's a chance, probably not a very good chance, but there's a chance," Malzahn said. If Marshall can't go, Malzahn has not decided whether Jonathan Wallace or Jeremy Johnson would make the start in his place. (AL.com) Comment

Ethier's status up in the air

So much for definitive answers in the case of Andre Ethier. Wednesday came and went, and the Dodgers apparently still don't know if [Ethier] will be able to play center in the National League Championship Series. Manager Don Mattingly said they expect Ethier to be able to do more in the next round and that Wednesday's workout at Dodger Stadium would give them a better indication of how much they could expect from Ethier. Yet when Ethier was done hitting and tracking balls down in center -- without apparent difficulty -- he said nothing had really changed about his status. Ethier was in one of his smiling, yes-or-no response modes. "It feels good," Ethier said. Good enough to play center? "I don't know yet," he said. "We're testing it [Wednesday], and we'll see how it feels at [Thursday's] workout." (Los Angeles Times) Comment
