New York Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson injured his elbow on Sunday, November 12, against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Still, Wilson let the Buffalo Bills know he will suit up for the Week 11 rematch.
“Things are going better,” Wilson told the media on Friday, November 17th. “I’m fine, so we’re going to rock this weekend.”
However, he admitted that he will not play at 100 percent.
“Yes [it’ll affect me during the game] but we’ll get there,” Wilson said.
Robert Saleh gave Wilson a concerning update ahead of the Bills clash
Head coach Robert Saleh spoke to the media before Wilson on Friday, November 17th.
When asked about Wilson’s injury, Saleh replied: “He will appear on the injury report. We will see that I will not speak for him or the doctors [doctors] But there are a few hurdles he has to overcome [before he can play].”
Wilson injured his elbow during the Raiders game on Sunday Night Football and required medical treatment on the sidelines. However, after a brief exit, he returned to the game.
During the first matchup with the Bills in Week 1, Wilson’s stats were underwhelming. He only had five balls for 34 yards, but he stunned the national audience with the touchdown catch of the season.
ESPN contributor Matt Bowen has a weekly updated column detailing the best catches of the 2023 season. Wilson’s game took place on Monday, September 11, in Week 1 and he remained No. 1 in the rankings throughout the season.
On the year, Wilson has 55 receptions for 642 receiving yards and two touchdowns. He leads the Jets in targets (95), catches, yards, touchdowns and first downs.
The former Ohio State product is on pace for 104 receptions for 1,213 yards and four touchdowns. That would set new career highs in both catches and yards during his 2022 Offensive Rookie of the Year campaign.
This is a developing story and we will provide new details as they become available.
