Jets coach Rex Ryan says Mark Sanchez's sore shoulder is worse than he first thought, though he still expects the quarterback to start Sunday at Chicago.

Ryan says it could be "a game-time type decision" whether Sanchez plays after he was limited in practice for the second straight day. Ryan said Wednesday that he was 99 percent sure Sanchez would be available, but scaled that down to 80 percent Thursday.

Ryan would not confirm some published reports that Sanchez has a slight cartilage tear in the shoulder, but did say he "never had a ton of zip" on his passes.

Sanchez was hurt against Pittsburgh last Sunday. Mark Brunell would get the start for the Jets (10-4) against the Bears (10-4) if Sanchez can't play.
