When the Jets acquired Aaron Rodgers, he was supposed to unlock the talent that the Jets knew Garrett Wilson had. However, Rodgers’ Achilles injury quickly changed the trajectory of Wilson’s season. Once again the Jets had to turn to Zach Wilson as their starter. The former second-overall pick is doing what he can to get the ball to his WR1.
In New York’s last game against the Raiders, Garrett Wilson injured his elbow. The 23-year-old finished the game vs. Las Vegas but has been limited most at practice.

#Jets coach Robert Saleh on Garrett Wilson’s (elbow) status for Week 11:
“We’ll see. He feels good, he’s speaking the right language. Everything is positive. Like I said, he’s…
