Wilson starting in Week 1 is still a possibility, but he’ll only play if he’s 100% healthy, per Rapoport. The procedure was just a meniscus trim for Wilson, which ended up being a best-case scenario after he left Friday’s preseason game with a knee injury.
If he isn’t ready for the Week 1 matchup against the Ravens, then Joe Flacco will likely get the start. Flacco, 37, played the first 11 seasons of his career in Baltimore where he won Super Bowl XLVII and was named Super Bowl MVP.
During his rookie year this past season, Wilson threw for just 2,334 yards and nine touchdowns to 11 interceptions in 13 games played.
The Week 1 matchup at MetLife Stadium is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Sept. 11.
