Wilson cleared by doctor to start for Jets in Pittsburgh

FLOREAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Zach Wilson will play quarterback for the New York Jets in Pittsburgh on Sunday, six weeks after undergoing knee surgery.

Coach Robert Saleh announced Wednesday his decision to let the second-year QB make his season debut in practice “if all goes well this week.”

Wilson has been working hard in recent weeks, but Saleh said Monday that the Jets are waiting for the quarterback’s doctor to clean him up before making a decision this week.

Joe Flacco started the first three games of the season, during which the Jets went 1-2 — including a stunning win in Cleveland two weeks ago, when they were in Finals 1: The 55 recovered from a 13-point deficit.

Wilson was injured in the preseason opener against Philadelphia on August 8. At 12 years old, needed arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus. He was initially expected to miss two to four weeks, but the Jets insist they won’t push Wilson back on the court.
