Background: The Jets, per The Athletic, were leaning toward giving the starting quarterback job back to Zach Wilson.
- But Wilson told multiple members of the organization — players, staff, coaches — that he is reluctant to start due to perceived injury risk.
Strange: It’s reasonable to assume that Wilson is trying to preserve his health for a fresh opportunity in 2024 — though it’s hard to imagine any team taking a shot on someone not cut out for the pro game.
Saleh: Robert Saleh attempted to refute the report, by stating that Wilson would not be with the team if he were unwilling to play.
Siemian: If Wilson does not start, the Jets will likely turn to Trevor Siemian in Week 14 against the Texans.
