Zach Wilson thinks he has a PCL injury, says knee feels “loose”

USA TODAY Sports

Jets head coach Robert Saleh told reporters that quarterback Zach Wilson will have an MRI after hurting his knee in Sunday’s loss to the Patriots and Wilson gave some insight into what kind of injury he might have suffered during his own media session.

Wilson told reporters that the initial belief is that he suffered a posterior cruciate ligament injury to his knee and, via multiple reporters, called that a “best-case scenario.” Wilson also said that his knee feels “loose” and that the hope is that he isn’t going to have to miss much time as a result of the injury.

That’s a less positive update that Saleh provided as the coach said the team feels good about the initial read on Wilson’s condition.

More news will come after the MRI gives a better idea of just how long the first-round pick might be out of action.

    The Jets and terrible quarterbacks. Name a more iconic duo.

    Small children shouldn’t be typing on keyboards. Wilson is 6’2 214 lbs, in other words fairly similar to the 6’2 222 lbs iron man in Brett Favre or did you think he was a small child as well?

  3. You know I loved Saleh as a DC but as a HC he’s definetly in over his head and it all started when he elected to play the season whitout a vet QB as a mentor for the rook to go to and ask questions and learn from, that thing he said about “I didn’t want too have Zack looking over his shoulder every game” doesn’t cut it at all, that was a horrible decision on the HCs part, that was the worst HC decision I’ve ever seen!

    NAH it’s that baby face!

  5. Saleh and Joe Douglas are a joke, bring back Rex Ryan and Mike Tannenbaum and let’s at least enjoy a game. That combo was so dysfunctional that it worked! It was fun to watch a game back then

  6. I actually thought White played well until he started forcing it.

    Personally, teams that are trying to rebuild and are trailing by two or more touchdowns should just run their offense and try to be competitive instead of trying to “catch up”. Learn to play the right way. Maybe you score and the opposition turns it over but wouldn’t the Jets have been better if White played consistently well rather than turning it over and into a blowout?

    No, Rex Ryan is not the answer. The Bills tried that and wasted a few years. Saleh needs to model Sean McDermott who built a deep roster and played relatively conservative football.
