Zach Wilson is back, and just in time for the New York Jets.
The No. 2 overall pick will return as a starting quarterback on Sunday against the Texans in Houston, according to a person with direct knowledge of the decision. Wilson has missed the last four games with a sprained posterior collateral ligament in his right knee.
Wilson’s return to action comes just as alternate quarterbacks Mike White and Joe Flacco were both placed on the reserve / COVID-19 list on Tuesday. That leaves only Wilson and Josh Johnson, who is on the practice squad, as quarterbacks.
Johnson will likely be promoted to the active roster to serve as Wilson’s replacement against the Texans.
Coach Robert Saleh said on Monday the Jets would assess Wilson’s knee before deciding Wednesday morning whether the rookie quarterback would be fit to play. The knee has been removed and Wilson will be back, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the decision.
The Athletic first announced that Wilson would start for the first time since his injury on October 24. The Athletic also reported that the Jets’ decision to start Wilson came before the situation with White and Flacco came to light.
Flacco said last week he was not vaccinated. White’s immunization status was not immediately known.
Wilson, 22, was in trouble when he injured himself against New England a month ago. He has just four touchdown passes and nine interceptions, and was out of step with the offense – which was ranked last in the NFL in most categories.
But Mike LaFleur’s unit began to thrive with Wilson sidelined. White started three games in Wilson’s absence, including his first NFL start in which he threw for 405 yards and three touchdowns in a win over Cincinnati on Oct. 31. He was injured on his second start at Indianapolis, but Johnson pitched for a career-high 317 yards and three TDs in relief for the Whites.
Flacco started last Sunday in a 24-17 loss to Miami, doing a solid job throwing for 291 yards and two touchdowns without interceptions.
Meanwhile, Wilson has not been placed in the injured reserve and has been able to train for the past two weeks on a limited basis. The Jets kept a close watch on the young quarterback, insisting he wouldn’t return to play until his knee was perfectly healthy.
“We are going to make sure we protect this young man,” Saleh said on Monday. “So when he’s healthy and he feels like there are no limits to his ability to play football or he’s not thinking about that knee, we’ll bring him out. But he has to be 100% healthy before he is taken out onto the football field.
Wilson recently said that sitting down and watching his teammates execute the offense effectively would help him.
“I would say it’s almost as beneficial as playing,” Wilson said. “Maybe you don’t feel it as much as going through it, but we all think and see the same things. I understand why Mike made a certain decision about something he did in a game or didn’t do.
And with seven games to go for the Jets 2-8, Wilson’s development and progress will be the primary focus.
