Is Zach Wilson nearing his return? What his coach said about his Week 1 status
New York Jets coach Robert Saleh told reporters that Wilson worked out Monday and a determination for his Week 1 availability will be announced Wednesday
New York Jets coach Robert Saleh left the possibility open that Zach Wilson could return for the start of the season.
Saleh told reporters Monday that Wilson, who is healing from a meniscus tear and bone bruise in his right knee, worked out today and is “potentially in play to start Sunday,” according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
New York opens the 2022 regular season this Sunday with a home game against the Baltimore Ravens.
“We’re going to see how the knee responds today and tomorrow, and we’ll have an answer for everybody on Wednesday,” Saleh said in a video shared by SNYtv’s Connor Hughes.
The former BYU quarterback and No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft is heading into his second season in the NFL.
