(AP) Quarterback Mark Sanchez has undergone season-ending surgery on his injured right shoulder, possibly also signaling the end of his New York Jets career.


The surgery on the torn labrum was performed by Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday, the team announced on Twitter and its official site. Sanchez, who hasn't played since being injured in the third preseason game, says in a statement that he was advised by Andrews and other doctors to have surgery.


Sanchez says he's "disappointed" by not being able to play this season, but expects a full recovery. A hefty contract, however, could make him a salary cap casualty in the offseason.


Sanchez was in a tight competition with rookie Geno Smith for the starting job this summer before being hurt against the Giants.
