According to Jets Head Coach Robert Saleh there is a chance that quarterback Zach Wilson could be in line to start on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.
Saleh made the surprising revelation to reporters during his Monday Zoom press conference, in which he stated that the team put Wilson through some strenuous workouts, and all went well.

If Wilson’s knee responds well come Tuesday the Jets will at least consider the possibility that last year’s second overall pick could open the season under center.
That is a stark contrast from where the Jets thought Wilson would be just three weeks ago when he initially suffered a bone bruise and slight tear of his meniscus which needed surgery.
The timetable was four weeks, and many believe that if there is doubt that veteran Joe Flacco would get the call to start against the Ravens.
