Jets QB Zach Wilson has a bone bruise and meniscus tear, per sources. He will miss 2-4 weeks. He will get a second opinion, but that is the belief right now.— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) August 13, 2022
Wilson went down after cutting a scramble in the first quarter of Friday night’s preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He limped into the locker room and did not return with many fearing the 23-year-old suffered a torn ACL. The Jets seem to have avoided the worst as there is a chance he will be back for the team’s regular-season opener against the Baltimore Ravens on September 11th. Backup quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Mike White will shoulder the load for the remainder of the preseason and potentially Week 1 if Wilson is not yet ready.
In 2021, Wilson completed 55.6 percent of his passes for 2,334 yards, nine touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.
