Jets avoid disaster with Zach Wilson injury

When Jets quarterback Zach Wilson went down with a knee injury in Friday night’s preseason opener against Philly, everyone held their breath. It was a non-contact injury, too. A potential ACL tear and long-term recovery could’ve been en route.

The concern continued all throughout the night until Saturday morning, when the organization could finally exhale upon learning some promising news.

Brian Costello of the New York Post reports Wilson has a bone bruise and meniscus tear. He’s only expected to miss 2-4 weeks — a season-ending bullet has been dodged.
