Mark Sanchez posts photo of himself receiving acupuncture on shoulder (pic)


On Tuesday afternoon, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez posted a photo to his Instagram page (below) in which he documents how he is receiving acupuncture on his injured right shoulder.

Despite his injury ordeal, Sanchez appears to be keeping his spirits up and his sense of humor intact, attaching the message, “Acupuncture #rehab #ouch #chesthair #manscape #teenwolf” to the posted pic. Heh. Teen Wolf. What a “Boof,” am I right?

Initial reports indicated that Sanchez was considering season-ending surgery to repair the torn labrum in his throwing arm, but it was later reported that Sanchez instead opted for rehabilitation, not an invasive surgical procedure that likely would have put an unceremonious end to his career with the Jets.

On Saturday, the Jets placed Sanchez on short-term injured reserve, meaning that no matter how well the quarterback’s arm responds to treatment, be it traditional or not-so traditional, more holistic approaches — as is the case with the acupuncture — he cannot be activated by the team until after the tenth game of the season.

But hey, in light of the above photo, at least Jets fans now can rip on the beleaguered and oft-criticized quarterback about his hairy chest now instead of video that surfaced over the summer featuring Sanchez dancing bare-assed at some party. And yet, this will do little to help those same fans move on from the dreaded “Buttfumble.” That, sadly for Sanchez, will never be forgotten. Nor should it.
