Jets quarterback Zach Wilson believes that he suffered a PCL injury in Sunday’s blowout loss to the Patriots. After the game, Wilson told reporters that he heard a “pop” and that his knee felt “loose” (via The Athletic).
Wilson’s description would be consistent with a PCL injury, but doctors won’t know for sure until he undergoes an MRI today. The injury occurred in the second quarter, when he was tackled by Patriots linebacker Matt Judon.
Depending on the severity, a PCL injury may or may not be a season-ender. In this case, the Jets would probably err on the side of caution. Gang Green is 1-5 after yesterday’s loss, so it’s unlikely that their late-season games will matter much.
Wilson completed 6-of-10 passes for 51 yards before his early exit. The Jets then turned things over to backup Mike White for his NFL debut. White — who figures to be the Jets’ QB1 for at least a little while — went 20-of-32 for 202 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions.
