In Sunday's victory, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez suffered a bruised throwing arm, but that won't slow him down this week as the Jets travel to Oakland to take on the Oakland Raiders

Sanchez suffered the injury when his right arm crashed into the helmet of Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Matt Roth while attempting a pass early in the fourth quarter with the Jets enjoying a 26-point lead. The play was actually never supposed to happen. However, Rex Ryan called a pass play to Plaxico Burress because Burress didn't have a catch. 

After the game Sanchez said he was fine, but called that moment "scary." He didn't undergo any tests on his arm or shoulder and is ready to go for this week.

Don't worry though, Jets fans. Here are four reason why a bruised throwing arm won't slow down Sanchez.
