  Jets quarterback Zach Wilson (2) throws at practice Jets’ White Out; Wilson Gets Start – Zach Wilson is the Jets starting quarterback again. Only three days after he was promoted from third-stringer to backup, Wilson will start in a pinch Sunday because Mike White was not cleared by doctors after his rib injury, as first reported by ESPN. It’s an unexpected twist because White finished last week’s game against the Bills after twice getting knocked out of the game and undergoing in-game X-rays. He went to a local hospital for a CT scan and “checked out fine,” according to head coach Robert Saleh said. Further, more precise testing this week showed further injury, leading to White not being cleared for contact. Wilson is 5-2 as a starter but was benched three weeks ago in favor of the locker-room favorite White. Saleh said that White will be re-evaluated on Monday, but Wilson may start the following game against the Jaguars on Thursday because it is a short week. Just like last season, White delivered a sensational debut but he had trouble staying healthy. He was limited in Friday’s practice. Team doctors cleared White for practice but not for contact, Saleh said. Read more at:  (Ryan Dunleavy/New York Post)
