out. he had the mrism this afternoon. he's out for at leave six weeks. but will not need surgery. now, i know fans may be happy to have mark sanchez at the starting quarterback but, remember, it's not good to lose a quarterback. nick foles still can make plays. this a play he's done this before with jeremy maclin and by the way had a great game yesterday. 59-yard touchdown. that was in the first quarter. he caught the ball, he caught the ball. this is not a good thing. the rush was really tough. and he broke his collarbone on that play. again, that's not a good thing. out for six weeks with the head coach knows with mark sanchez he's got confidence. >> we don't look at it as a backup. we look at it as a starter and we're looking for people to be starters. because that better be more mind set going into it because you are literal al play away from being a starter and i think that's how mark approached it his preparation i think is just out standing in terms of what he does here in terms of preparing
