It had been claimed that the quarterback, who is currently on the New York Jets' injured reserve designated to return list, had decided to have an operation to repair his injured shoulder, which would keep him off the field for around six months.
The team's head coach told the team's website: "Really, there's no update. When we spoke with Mark, all indications to us are that he's going to continue the rehab and as a matter of fact he was here today rehabbing, so really there's no update."
The 26-year-old added: "I think we made the decision that's best for the team, best for me and my medical health. I'll come back in eight weeks and be ready to play."
