The NY Jets could have an interesting decision to make at the quarterback position in the near future with both Zach Wilson and Mike White expected to practice this week.

Head coach Robert Saleh spoke to the media on Friday following the team's 45-30 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night, and he provided a few injury updates regarding the Jets roster.

There was the bad news, notably that safety Marcus Maye had torn his Achilles and would be out for the remainder of the season. Tight end Tyler Kroft is also going on the injured reserve with a chest injury.

However, there was some good news too.

White, who injured his forearm in Thursday night's loss, will practice next week and seems likely to be available for Week 10. Wilson should practice as well after missing the last two weeks with a knee injury.

Elsewhere, wide receiver Corey Davis and running back Tevin Coleman are both expected to return to practice as well.

The NY Jets will have a decision to make with Zach Wilson and Mike White

Don't look now, but the Jets will have a very interesting decision to make in regard to who their starting quarterback will be next Sunday. Realistically, there are four quarterbacks who could start for the Jets next week.

Wilson and White are the likely candidates, but you could make a case for Josh Johnson, who played very well in place of White on Thursday, and even Joe Flacco, who the Jets traded for prior to the deadline.

Either way, the Jets' starting quarterback in Week 10 could very much depend on the health of those on the roster. Saleh was hesitant about naming a starter and insisted that the decision will come down to health and how each player performs in practice.

The Jets will have extra time to make their decision with 10 days between their Thursday night loss and their divisional showdown with the Buffalo Bills.

Expect the coaching staff to take as much time as possible to make this important decision.
