And just as Wilson comes back, the Jets lose a pair of quarterbacks for the short-term as Joe Flacco and Mike White were both placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

That leaves only Wilson and Josh Johnson on the roster at the moment. If the team is looking to add an arm to the practice squad once Johnson is placed on the 53-man roster, former Jets draft pick James Morgan was let go by the Pittsburgh Steelers. As undesirable as it may be, Morgan should be somewhat familiar with the Jets offense and would only be around for a short stay.
