Jets Confirm Flacco Will Start Week 3; Wilson Rehab to be “Ramped up”

With their thrilling 31-30 victory behind them, it’s time for the Jets to start preparing for Sunday’s home meeting against the Cincinnati Bengals.  And they’ll start it knowing that Joe Flacco will be under center once again.

Robert Saleh says Wilson is progressing well, but would not guarantee the quarterback will even start the team’s week 4 meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  According to Connor Hughes of SNY, the Jets want Wilson to be 110% before they’re willing to put him back on the field.  So while there is no specific time line, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York says Saleh and the Jets will look to “ramp up” Wilson’s return.  The quarterback did do some light work with the team this past week and was seen getting loose on the field prior to kick-off against the Browns.

News of Flacco starting will clearly be better received than his week two start when he was coming off of a lopsided loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
