Zach Wilson returns to practice

NFL: AUG 12 Preseason - Jets at Eagles

Jets head coach Robert Saleh confirmed that Joe Flacco will make his second straight start at quarterback in Sunday’s game against the Browns, but there’s signs of progress for the team’s preferred starter making it back into the lineup.

Zach Wilson participated in practice on Wednesday for the first time since he hurt his knee in August. Wilson had meniscus surgery four weeks ago to address the injury and has been rehabbing away from the field until this week.

Saleh said before the opener that Wilson won’t be available until at least Week Four. Sticking to that plan would give Wilson three weeks of practice before he would make his 2022 debut against the Steelers.

Any thoughts of deviating from the plan are only likely to come after seeing Wilson get through multiple days of practice, so any discussion of speeding things up will likely wait until next week.

  1. Jets gonna Jet.

    They are horrible at managing an NFL franchise. It’s like they’re trying to be bad.

  2. Hey Zach….Joe’s on pace to throw over 1,000 passes this year, let’s keep our eye on the prize here

    They could have been worse. They could have drafted Mac Jones

  4. Last time I checked, those horrible Jets were tied with the amazing NE Patriots. Now that’s a franchise headed in the right direction.

  5. Play starters in pre-season, players get hurt (Avery Williamson). Barely play starters in pre-season, and we get the OL play that we saw on Sunday. Flacco got hit so often that retirement on Monday seemed like a possibility. The schedule in the first 8 weeks certainly isn’t helping either.

  6. I love the coach keeping the receipts on fans not believing in the Jets
    he actually said we didn’t lose the game we were just beat by a better team. Please fire this man today if possible.
