Jets QB Zach Wilson likely out next two weeks with PCL sprain

New York Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson will miss time due to a knee injury.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday morning that an MRI confirmed a minor PCL sprain, per a source familiar with the situation. He's likely to miss at least the next two weeks.

Jets coach Robert Saleh confirmed the diagnosis later Monday, adding Wilson's timeline to return is likely 2-4 weeks.

Wilson said after the Jets' 54-13 loss to New England that he heard a "pop" in his knee and it felt "loose."

The rookie quarterback exited the game early in the second quarter after taking several shots. After taking a hit, Wilson limped to the medical tent under his own power and didn't return. He went 6-of-10 passing for 51 yards and took one sack before exiting.

Backup Mike White entered for Wilson and finished the blowout, completing 20 of 32 attempts for 202 yards, a TD and two INTs. The 26-year-old former fifth-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys has never started an NFL game.
