Jets QB Zach Wilson to be smarter with football after four-interception loss

  Jets QB Zach Wilson to be smarter with football after four-interception loss After a dreadful four-interception game, Zach Wilson is vowing to play smarter going forward.Per Rich Cimini of ESPN, Jets coach Robert Saleh said after that defeat that Wilson must learn that "sometimes it's OK to be boring," and the first-year pro seemed to understand Saleh's message when speaking with reporters Thursday.

Wilson will undergo an MRI on Friday and then meet with a hand specialist. While X-rays came back negative, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that it is too early to rule out surgery for the eight-time Pro Bowler.

Wilson was attempting a pass in the third quarter of Seattle’s 26-17 loss when his fingers hit Aaron Donald’s arm as Wilson followed through. His right middle finger was shown bending in the wrong direction immediately after. You can see the photo and video here, but beware that the injury was a bit graphic.

Though Wilson somehow remained in the game through Seattle’s next possession, he was eventually replaced by Geno Smith.

If the injury is one he can play through, expect him to be on the field against the Pittsburgh Steelers next week.

In a sign of the starkly different way Americans view the coronavirus pandemic, vaccinated older adults are far more worried about the virus than the unvaccinated and far likelier to take precautions despite the protection afforded by their shots, according to a new poll out Wednesday from The Associated Press-NORC Center for
