Jets rookie QB Zach Wilson is expected to miss two-to-four weeks after an MRI confirmed that he has a sprained PCL in his right knee, reports SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

Wilson suffered the injury during the second quarter of Sunday's blowout loss to the New England Patriots and was in clear pain on the Gillette Stadium turf after a big hit from OLB Matt Judon. He eventually walked off under his own power, and was soon ruled out for the rest of the game.

"That’s what we’ve heard so far," Wilson said after the game about the possibility of it being a PCL injury. "That would probably be the best-case scenario. Obviously the pain really isn’t there. It just kind of feels like something is off as far as being loose or unstable a little bit."

With Wilson out, the expectation is that Mike White will become the Jets' starter, with Josh Johnson likely elevated from the practice squad.

If Wilson heals quickly, the earliest date for his return is likely Nov. 14 against the Buffalo Bills.

If the injury keeps him out a full month, his possible return date could be Nov. 28 against the Houston Texans.
