Hey, athletes, you do realize that there is such a thing as sharing too much with your fans, right? Er, right?

Apparently not, because Mark Sanchez just took to Instagram to post a video of him getting stitches removed from the shoulder that he just had surgery on. The video starts with a creepy up-close-and-personal look at Sanchez's face and then focuses in on a doctor taking stitches out of his shoulder. We get that Sanchez doesn't have a whole lot of other things going on in his life right now. But why did he choose to put this on Instagram?

Oh well. At least it's not as disgusting as the photo that Kobe Bryant put up on Instagram after he had surgery on his Achilles a few months back. We guess it could have been way worse.
