NEW YORK (AP) — New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson is expected to miss two to four weeks with a bone bruise and torn meniscus in his right knee, according to a person with knowledge of the injury.

The person told The Associated Press that how long Wilson will miss will be determined by the arthroscopic procedure to repair the meniscus. Post-match tests indicated the ACL was intact and an MRI on Saturday morning revealed the exact nature of the injury. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced details.

The New York Post first reported that Wilson was diagnosed with a bone bruise and a torn meniscus.

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

There’s a chance Wilson will be ready to play in the season opener against Baltimore on Sept. 11. Otherwise, veteran Joe Flacco would likely start in place of Wilson against his old team.
