With rookie quarterback Zach Wilson spraining his PCL in the Jets’ loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday, former USF quarterback Mike White is expected to start for New York against Cincinnati this weekend.
Wilson, who was selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, will miss two to four weeks, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter. White stepped in for the injured Wilson on Sunday and ended the day 20-of-32 for 202 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
The only two quarterbacks on the Jets’ active roster before Monday were Wilson and White, but the team made a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles to acquire veteran Joe Flacco for a sixth-round pick that can potentially turn into a fifth “based on play time” that Flacco receives, according to Schefter.
Flacco will serve in the backup role, according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini, and White will be the starter against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
Before his appearance against the Patriots, White had never played an NFL snap aside from his appearances in the preseason.
In college, White played with the Bulls for two seasons from 2013-14 and finished his USF career with 2,722 passing yards and 11 passing touchdowns to go along with 16 interceptions in 17 appearances.
He then went on to transfer to Western Kentucky where he played two seasons as well and ended with 8,540 passing yards and 63 passing touchdowns, with just 15 interceptions in 27 appearances before heading to the NFL.
