The New York Jets will finally be close to full strength this Sunday afternoon. 

Second-year quarterback Zach Wilson will be making his 2022 season debut this Sunday when the Jets play the Steelers of Pittsburgh. 

Wilson suffered a knee injury in the Jets' first preseason game. He's been recovering ever since. Joe Flacco has been filling in, in the meantime. 

Wilson will start for the Jets on Sunday. 

"#Jets coach Robert Saleh says Zach Wilson fully participated in practice again and is off the injury report. He'll make his 2022 debut Sunday vs. the #Steelers," said Tom Pelissero.

Zach Wilson, meanwhile, is going to be making any significant changes to his playing style, despite recovering from a knee injury. 

Wilson is still trying to make plays out of the pocket. 

"I'm full go. I'm going to play ball how I can," Wilson said after his first full practice in seven weeks, via "If somebody comes up, [I'll] make somebody miss, get out on the edge, extend plays when I need to, hang in the pocket. I'm playing exactly how I should be."

Can Zach Wilson turn the Jets' season around? We will find out this weekend.
