Jets fans can breathe a heavy sigh of relief.
On Friday night, many feared for the worst after QB Zach Wilson went down with an apparent non-contact injury during the Jets’ preseason game against the Eagles.

Jets’ QB Zach Wilson has a bone bruise and a meniscus tear and is expected to miss 2-4 weeks, as @BrianCoz also reported. Wilson will undergo arthroscopic surgery to address and correct the injury. Jets consider it fortunate news.

– New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson will miss two to four weeks after an MRI exam Saturday morning revealed a bone bruise and a meniscus tear in his right knee, sources confirmed.
The Jets believe there is a chance Wilson could be ready for the season opener against the Baltimore Ravens, a source told ESPN. Without Wilson, Joe Flacco, 37, moves to the top of the depth chart, followed by Mike White and Chris Streveler.
Wilson will undergo a surgical procedure, but the meniscus doesn’t need a full repair, only a trim, a source said. The arthroscopic surgery is expected to determine whether Wilson will miss closer to two or four weeks, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
If Wilson isn’t ready for the season opener, veteran QB Joe Flacco will be ready to take over for him.
Jets have insisted that Joe Flacco is a starting QB in the NFL.
If that Wilson injury is as bad as it may appear, they may just find out. Again.
