  • Jets' Zach Wilson: Could return in 4-6 weeks

    Wilson (knee) could return in four to six weeks after successful surgery Tuesday on his meniscus, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.

    While everything went according to plan with the surgery, prior timeline estimates of 2-4 weeks may not have accounted for the possibility of a severe bone bruise or the Jets' reported desire to take a cautious approach with their second-year quarterback. Howe says it's "not entirely out of the question that Wilson could operate on accelerated timeline" and play Week 1, but it doesn't sound especially likely, with Adam Schefter of ESPN reporting that Joe Flacco is "in line to start the regular-season opener" against Baltimore.

  • Jets' Zach Wilson: Undergoes successful meniscus trim

    Wilson's knee surgery was successful, with no surprises from the original diagnosis, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    It sounds liked doctors were able to address his meniscus by trimming it rather than repairing it. That was the Jets' expectation, but there was some chance he'd need a repair, which might've put his 2022 season in jeopardy. Instead, Wilson could be looking at a timetable as short as 2-4 weeks, though Cimini notes that the Jets won't put him on the field until he's back to 100 percent. Connor Hughes of The Athletic supports the notion that Wilson is likely to return closer to the one-month mark than two weeks, while Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Joe Flacco is expected to start Week 1 against the Ravens.

  • Jets' Zach Wilson: Surgery scheduled for Tuesday

    Wilson will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

    Wilson suffered a bone bruise and a meniscus tear during Friday's preseason opener. Initial reports suggested the second-year quarterback would miss 2-to-4 weeks, but Jets head coach Robert Saleh won't discuss a timetable until the procedure is finished. "We're optimistic," Saleh said. "But he's not out of the woods until they get in there and make the decision." In the meantime, expect Joe Flacco to take all the starting reps at quarterback for the Jets.

  • Jets' Zach Wilson: Out multiple weeks

    Wilson suffered a bone bruise and a meniscus tear during Friday's preseason win, which will require minor "trimming" surgery, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. He's expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

    This is probably the best-case scenario for the Jets considering the injury appeared to be far more serious after Wilson limped off the field from a non-contact knee injury. While a meniscus tear can have varying degrees of severity, it doesn't seem as if the 2021 No. 2 overall pick will miss significant time, and he could even be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. Expect Joe Flacco to take all the starting reps in the meantime.

  • Jets' Zach Wilson: Reportedly suffers bone bruise

    Wilson reportedly suffered a bone bruise during Friday's preseason win over the Eagles, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.

    The news appeared to be dire immediately after Wilson limped to locker room Friday after going down due to a non-contact knee injury, but there seemed to be some growing optimism late in the evening that the second-year signal caller didn't suffer a major injury. This report would certainly seem to echo that statement, but the Jets are reportedly doing additional tests to determine whether Wilson injured his meniscus during the aforementioned play. Expect the Jets to release more information as the weekend progresses.

  • Jets' Zach Wilson: Injury may not be season-ending

    The Jets are hopeful that the knee injury sustained by Wilson during Friday's preseason win in Philadelphia isn't season-ending, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

    Coach Robert Saleh was less committal in a media session postgame, only noting an initial evaluation of Wilson indicated the ACL in his right knee is intact, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post. In the end, an MRI on Saturday will provide a more official diagnosis. If the optimistic scenario comes to pass, the best-case recovery timetable would be 2-to-3 weeks, with the worst case 4-to-6 weeks, per Hughes. Behind Wilson, Joe Flacco, Mike White and Chris Streveler are the current quarterbacks on the Jets roster.

  • Jets' Zach Wilson: Set for MRI on Saturday

    Coach Robert Saleh said Friday that Wilson will undergo an MRI on his right knee Saturday, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

    Wilson left Friday's preseason win at Philadelphia early in the first quarter after he came up limping at the end of a seven-yard scramble. Eventually, the Jets ruled out a return for their franchise quarterback, and afterward Saleh told Brian Costello of the New York Post that an initial evaluation of Wilson's right knee implied the ACL is intact, which will be confirmed, one way or another, by Saturday's test. Assuming Wilson has to miss time, the team currently rosters QBs Joe Flacco, Mike White and Chris Streveler.

  • Jets' Zach Wilson: Injures right knee Friday

    Wilson sustained a right knee injury during Friday's preseason game in Philadelphia and is questionable to return.

    At the end of a seven-yard scramble in the first quarter, Wilson dove, had a visible limp when he got to his feet and then fell back to the turf, where he remained for multiple minutes. He then made his way to the locker room. Last year, he missed four games in the middle of the season due to a sprained PCL in his right knee, but it remains to be seen if he'll suffer a similar fate this time around. If Wilson misses any time, Joe Flacco, Mike White and Chris Streveler will handle quarterback duties for the Jets.

  • Jets' Zach Wilson: Leaves Friday's game

    Wilson went to the locker room after sustaining an undisclosed injury during Friday's preseason game at Philadelphia, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The injury occurred at the end of a seven-yard scramble, after which he dove forward, attempted to get up and then remained on the turf for a few minutes, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic. With Joe Flacco sitting out Friday, the Jets are down to Mike White and Chris Streveler at quarterback.

  • Jets' Zach Wilson: Should get one or two series Friday

    Wilson and the other members of the Jets' first-team offense are expected to play one or two series in Friday's preseason opener against the Eagles, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

    Per Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record, after Wilson gets in his initial preseason game reps, Joe Flacco and Mike White will be next in line to take reps under center.
