Feeling OK? Jets' Sanchez says yes after concussion test

NEW YORK -- Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez said Tuesday that he's fine, two days after being tested for a concussion following a season-opening victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

Sanchez acknowledged the tests during his weekly spot on ESPN Radio New York, saying the team "checked my baseline tests and compared it to my balance test and everything now." He said he feels good and was never concerned he had a concussion, and believes the Jets "were being really cautious."

Sanchez was knocked around a bit in the win -- he was sacked four times and took a number of other hard hits -- and appeared weary while talking to reporters after the game. He was 26-of-44 passing for 335 yards and two touchdowns while throwing an interception Sunday night.
