Zach Wilson, the quarterback for the New York Jets, had successful knee surgery on Tuesday. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Wilson is healing well and still has a chance to play against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. Rapoport said, “There were no surprises during surgery.” Wilson is anticipated to make a quick comeback to the field for the same reason.
Wilson suffered a non-contact injury on Friday during the Jets’ preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was found to have a meniscus tear and a bone bruise, necessitating arthroscopic surgery. In the beginning, a 2- to 4-week recovery period was projected, barring any unforeseen complications following surgery. Wilson still has a chance to make a comeback before the start of the season after the meniscus trim went well. The Jets will undoubtedly be careful with their young quarterback until he is fully healthy.
