Jets' quarterback Mark Sanchez has elected to have surgery on his torn labrum, necessitating four to six months of rehab.

Sanchez injured his right shoulder in a preseason game this year, and planned to rehab the injury without surgery. However, the NFL Network's Ian Rappaport reports that Sanchez will now go under the knife to repair the torn muscle, and will officially miss the remainder of the season.

The Jets are currently 2-2 under Sanchez's replacement Geno Smith.
