Jets QB Zach Wilson sidelined again for Thursday's game vs. Browns

0

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has not cleared concussion protocol and will miss Thursday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.

Head coach Robert Saleh announced the news on Tuesday.

“Zach’s not clearing, so he’s out,” Saleh told reporters.

Wilson’s absence means that backup Trevor Siemian will presumably start for a second consecutive game.

Wilson was concussed in a Week 15 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Siemian replaced Wilson at quarterback and finished the 30-0 loss. Siemian then started Sunday’s win over the Washington Commanders. He completed 27 of 49 passes for 217 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the 30-28 win.

Thursday’s game won’t carry significant stakes for the 6-9 Jets who have been eliminated from the postseason. The 10-5 Browns are seeing their fourth straight win as they look to clinch a wild-card bert in the AFC.

Saleh didn’t rule out Wilson’s return for the Jets’ season finale against the New England Patriots.

“We will see,” Saleh said.
