Mark Sanchez will sit out the New York Jets' game at Tampa Bay because of a sprained right knee. Kellen Clemens will start in his place.

Coach Rex Ryan says he made the decision to have Sanchez not play after seeking the advice of team doctors. Ryan says Sanchez was upset by the decision, but the coach says it was in the rookie quarterback's best interest, as well as the team's.
