Jets head coach Robert Saleh met with reporters ahead of Friday's practice and announced that Wilson would be listed as questionable for the team's upcoming game against the Buffalo Bills with an elbow injury.
Wilson has been a limited participant in practice all week with the elbow injury he suffered this past weekend. Normally, when a player is a limited participant every day, they're usually on track to play that week.
However, Saleh insisted that Wilson still has a few "hurdles" he has to clear before he can actually take the field. There's a real possibility that the Jets will be without their WR1 in Sunday's must-win divisional matchup.
What's the latest on the Garrett Wilson injury
Wilson appeared to injure his elbow in the second half of the Jets' 16-12 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday Night Football this past weekend.
Of course, Wilson did play the rest of the game and was even asked to throw a wide receiver pass in the fourth quarter. The trick play was well-designed but predictably failed when it became clear that Wilson could not throw the ball.
The Jets' offense has struggled mightily in recent weeks (and really all season), even with a wide receiver on pace for over 1,200 yards. One can only imagine what this Jets offense would look like without Wilson.
Allen Lazard has been a major disappointment as the team's WR2 and the rest of the wide receiver room is almost entirely made up of undrafted rookies or former undrafted rookies.
The likes of Xavier Gipson, Irvin Charles, Malik Taylor (practice squad), Jason Brownlee, and Randall Cobb don't exactly strike fear into opposing defenses.
This Jets offense needs Garrett Wilson. Here's to hoping he's able to suit up for Sunday's game.
