Jets' Wilson expected to make season debut vs. Steelers
Wilson is expected to start Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers barring any setbacks.
The 23-year-old has yet to play this season due to a knee injury. He underwent surgery after suffering a meniscus tear and bone bruise in the preseason opener.
"I'm full go. I'm going to play ball how I can," Wilson said Wednesday, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. "If somebody comes up, (I'll) make somebody miss, get out on the edge, extend plays when I need to, hang in the pocket. I'm playing exactly how I should be."
Joe Flacco replaced Wilson through the first three games of the year, completing 58.7% of his passes for 901 yards and five touchdowns against three interceptions. The Jets went 1-2 and their offense ranks 20th in the NFL with 17.3 points per game.
Wilson, whom New York drafted second overall in 2021, completed 55.6% of his pass attempts while tossing nine touchdowns to 11 interceptions in 13 games as a rookie.
