Wilson suffered a meniscus and bone bruise injury during the Jets preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on Aug. 12. Joe Flacco has been starting in his place.

The Jets are off to a 1-2 this season and the offense could use a boost, after Sunday’s 27-12 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Flacco turned the ball over 4 times, which included 2 interceptions.

Wilson will look to improve upon his rookie season. He threw for 2,334 yards, 9 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
