Zach Wilson suffers knee injury against Patriots

Zach Wilson injury

New York Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson suffered a knee injury during Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.

Wilson took a big hit from Patriots pass-rusher Matt Judon after he threw a deep pass early in the second quarter. He landed awkwardly on his knees and remained on the turf in pain.

Wilson limped off under his own power and was examined in the blue medical tent. He later went to the locker room and was labeled questionable to return. The Jets were awarded a first down at the New England 2-yard line on the play due to a pass interference penalty.

It’s possible Wilson initially injured his knee a few plays earlier. He was hit low by a Patriots defender near the sideline, and Jets head coach Robert Saleh was furious that the officials did not throw a flag.

Former fifth-round pick Mike White took over for Wilson and threw a touchdown pass to cut the Patriots’ lead to 17-7.
