New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has reportedly avoided a serious injury, with an MRI finding that the second-year quarterback has a bone bruise and meniscus tear, according to the New York Post. 

Wilson is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery and will miss 2-4 weeks.

Wilson, drafted by the Jets with the second overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, exited New York’s first preseason game after injuring his right knee while trying to cut upfield on a first-quarter scramble. 

“Just run your butt out of bounds,” Jets head coach Robert Saleh said after the game. “He got a little greedy, he wanted to get more. It’s a new sod, so the turf wasn’t exactly as firm as you want it to be.”

Speculation after New York’s 24-21 win over the Philadelphia Eagles was rampant, with many wondering whether Wilson tore an ACL. Saleh told reporters after the game Wilson’s ACL was “supposed to be intact.”

Wilson’s meniscus will require a trim and not a full repair, according to reports. It’s a major sigh of relief for the Jets, who recently lost first-round draft pick Mekhi Becton, who is likely out for the season after fracturing his knee cap.
