Zach Wilson’s knee surgery was viewed as a “success,” keeping Week 1 in play for the Jets starting quarterback.
Wilson injured his knee early in New York’s first preseason game Friday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. He underwent surgery in Los Angeles on Tuesday under the direction of Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Dr. ElAttrache is the team physician for both the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Los Angeles Rams, and “is recognized for treatment and research of knee, shoulder, and elbow injuries.”
