Douglas has seen ‘tremendous progress’


Powerful words from Joe Douglas talking about the progress this one Jets player has made.

Talking about Zach Wilson, the second-year QB, who is currently out with a knee injury, but should return soon.

“I think we’ve talked about him coming back at the end of last year and the jump he made,” Douglas said. “He was having that same level of progression throughout OTAs, throughout training camp. I know you guys were here. I’m sure he would like to have that first series back in the Philly game, but he was getting back into rhythm and showing all of those traits and the progression that he had made in that second series before the injury. We have seen tremendous progress from Zach.”

To say any young player has made “tremendous progress” is a good sign for a team because they come into the league as rookies with so much to learn.

So now it’s just a matter of Wilson getting healthy, and showing that “tremendous progress” in real games during the 2022-23 season.
