FLORHAM PARK, NJ (AP) — New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson underwent arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee and remains on track to return in a few weeks, a report said. knowledgeable person at the Associated Press.

Wilson flew to Los Angeles to have the procedure performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who cut the meniscus and found no other damage to the knee, the person who spoke to the AP said under cover of anonymity because the team has not announced the results of the surgery. This schedule means the Jets could still have their starting quarterback for Week 1.

ESPN first reported that no further damage was seen during Wilson’s operation.

Wilson was originally expected to miss two to four weeks with a bone bruise and meniscus tear in his right knee, but how long he would be sidelined would be determined by meniscus surgery. Although the Jets have received some good news, they will likely be cautious with the second-year quarterback before bringing him back on the field.

It was initially feared that Wilson would suffer a serious — and potentially season-ending — knee injury during the second offensive series in New York’s 24-21 preseason opener victory at Philadelphia last Friday night.

Joe Flacco could still start the regular season opener against Baltimore — his former team — on Sept. 11 if Wilson isn’t ready.
