Jets QB Mark Sanchez ran on the treadmill for the first time since his knee surgery, NFL Network’s Lindsay Soto reported Thursday.
Sanchez is working out with a trainer at USC, where he played in college. He is from Southern California and stays there during part of the offseason.
Sanchez had a procedure on his left knee Feb. 17 to repair the patella ligament. He said two weeks ago that he hoped to be running on the ground sometime around mid-May, so it appears he’s ahead of schedule.
Sanchez hopes to participate in the Jets’ June 14-16 minicamp. He isn’t in danger of missing training camp.
