FLOREHAM PARK, NJ – The New York Jets quarterback erupted again on Tuesday.
non-veteran Zach WilsonA source in the league, considered No. 2 overall, who has missed the past four games with a knee injury, confirmed he will be back on Sunday to start against the Houston Texans.
Josh Johnson He is being promoted from the coaching staff to support Wilson.
Wilson was acquitted following medical evaluations on Monday, and sources said the situation of the other quarterbacks did not appear in the decision to start him.
Wilson will be the third different player in many games. Initially, he was replaced by White, who started three games before being put on the bench for Flacco, who started in Sunday’s 24-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
When Wilson suffered a grade 2 sprain of his right posterior cruciate ligament in week seven, he was expected to miss two to four weeks due to the injury, according to Gates.
A lot happened while he was recovering. White, in his first career start, electrified the team and fan base with a 405-yard pass performance in a upset for the Cincinnati Bengals. Coach Robert Salih has fueled speculation by refusing to say Wilson will return to his role once he recovers.
White lost his touch in a run of four interceptions in Week 10, prompting Saleh to make a controversial change in the Miami game. The decision to start Flacco on White was met with sharp criticism, but Flacco did a trustworthy job in the loss – 291 yards and two touchdowns.
Wilson has practiced for the past two weeks on a limited basis, but the organization didn’t want to put him on the field until he was 100% healthy.
“We will make sure to protect this young man,” Saleh said on Monday. “When he’s healthy and feels there are no limits to his ability to play where he doesn’t think about the knee, we’ll bring him back there.”
Wilson is 1-5 as a starter, with four touchdown passes, nine interceptions and 27.0 QBR, which ranks 31st out of 33 eligible passersby.
The athlete first reported the return to Wilson.
