The New York Jets have already been having problems on offense early in games. For the time being, it appears they’ll have to try and change that without Zach Wilson. 

New York’s new franchise quarterback, the second overall pick in this year’s NFL draft, is questionable to return with a knee injury suffered in the second quarter of the Jets’ AFC East clash with the New England Patriots. The hit by the Pats’ Matt Judon appeared to come well after Wilson got rid of the ball. There was no penalty for roughing the passer called.  

With Wilson questionable to return, Mike White is the quarterback for New York. A 2018 fifth-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys, White had never appeared in an NFL game before coming in for Wilson in this game. White has been in the Jets organization for three seasons, spending the last two years on the practice squad. He was activated from the practice squad to the game day roster three times in 2020, the only times he was on the active roster prior to earning the backup quarterback job this season. 

Wilson entered Sunday’s game completing 57.3% of his passes for 1,117 yards with four touchdowns to nine interceptions through five games. His nine interceptions entering Week 7 were the most in the NFL.
