CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) — Mark Sanchez is getting the first chance to start.

Locked in a tightly contested quarterback competition with rookie Geno Smith, Sanchez got the nod Tuesday to be under center for the New York Jets in their preseason opener Friday night at Detroit.

“Certainly, he’s the incumbent,” coach Rex Ryan said. “The competition starts off and we’ll see how it goes from here, but it seemed like the natural thing to do.”
