Wilson fue sacado del campo después de sufrir una lesión en la rodilla sin contacto el viernes por la noche durante un juego de pretemporada contra los Philadelphia Eagles.. Más tarde le diagnosticaron un hematoma óseo y un menisco desgarrado..
Dr. Neal ElAttrache, a specialist in sports medicine as well as shoulder, elbow and knee injuries, is set to do the surgery. He was seen with Aaron Rodgers in December when the Green Bay Packers star was dealing with a toe injury toward the end of last season. The procedure to repair the meniscus will determine how long Wilson will be sidelined. The current prognosis is 2-4 semanas.
“We’re optimistic,” Jets head coach Robert Saleh told reporters Sunday. “But he’s not out of the woods until they get in there and make the decision.”
There’s still a small chance Wilson could be the Jets’ starting quarterback on Sept. 11 when the team opens the regular season against the Baltimore Ravens.
“That’s all going to depend on what happens here with the surgery and the feedback we get from the doctors, and gathering all the information before we even come remotely close to making that decision,” Saleh added.
Joe Flacco and Mike White are in line to start should Wilson be out for a long period of time.
