Mark Sanchez is not practicing for the New York Jets while recovering from a sprained right knee, but coach Rex Ryan is optimistic about the rookie quarterback's chances of playing Sunday at Tampa Bay.

Sanchez sprained the posterior cruciate ligament in the knee while diving for a first down in New York's 19-13 win over Buffalo on Thursday night. Ryan says Sanchez spent the majority of the weekend at the team's facility rehabilitating the injury.
