Jets quarterback Zach Wilson suffered an injury Friday night in his team’s preseason opener against the Eagles.

On a first-down play during the Jets’ second offensive possession of the night, Wilson escaped the rush and scrambled for a medium gain, cutting back to the inside and diving for extra yardage at the end of the play. The second-year quarterback came up limping, which got progressively worse until Wilson eventually gave up and went to the ground.
