It looks like Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson avoided a serious injury late in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.
Odds Across Sportsbooks
The Jets made it a point not to cast any blame on quarterback Zach Wilson after his rough return to the starting job on Sunday.
It's "not out of the question" that Aaron Rodgers could return this season, sources said.
Jets safety Tony Adams is out for the remainder of Sunday’s game against the Cowboys with a hamstring injury. Adams left the game in the second quarter and was originally listed as questionable to return. He has since been down to out.

This leaves the Jets with just three safeties remaining: Jordan Whitehead, Adrian Amos and Ashtyn Davis.
CB Michael Carter II is also questionable to return with an elbow injury
The inactives are out for the New York Jets and their first-round pick is not dressing. The Jets are making Will McDonald a healthy scratch for Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. McDonald played 13 snaps in Week 1 against the Bills. He was essentially pushed out, at least for now, by the returning Carl Lawson. He was simply a victim of the numbers the game on the defensive line.
Cornerback Bryce Hall is also inactive as Brandin Echols returns from his suspension. Hall was mostly a weekly inactive last season
The Dallas Cowboys haven avoided the catastrophic injuries thus far this 2023 season, but they are not unscathed. Wideout Brandin Cooks, the club’s top free-agent acquisition this past offseason, will be unavailable for the team on Sunday according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. A knee sprain is the culprit.
The Cowboys worked to improve their wideout corps after last year’s debacle saw Noah Brown as the team’s No. 2 receiver and the lack of quality depth helped Dak Prescott to a league-leading 15 interceptions in just 12 games. Dallas hopes they’ll see improvement out of veteran Michael Gallup, who was recovering from an ACL injury during his lackluster 2022 campaign, and second-year wideouts Kavontae Turpin and Jalen Tolbert
Dallas scored on 55.5% of their offensive drives. League average was 37.9% in 2022.
. 465 points per play on offense ranked Top 5 in Week 1.
Literally stopped trying final 2 drives, 7 plays.

Somehow, in the context of a 40-0 blowout victory, detractors looked to find something wrong with Dallas’ performance. With Dak Prescott failing to record a passing touchdown, the offense’s performance somehow got labeled as a disappointment despite scoring 27 points in limited action
The Cowboys had a brief scare on the sideline as Micah Parsons was returning what initially was ruled a 37-yard touchdown but later overturned to a fumble recovery at the Jets 37.
Not all of the pics for the game are available yet, but why wait? The Cowboys certainly didn’t, jumping out to a 7-0 lead with a dominating opening drive that immediately put Zach Wilson behind the eight ball. The star-studded defense did the rest. Trevon Diggs, Jayron Kearse, Malik Hooker, Osa Odighizuwa, Leighton Vander Esch and DeMarcus Lawrence all had signature plays on the evening and they were all in support of another MVP-level performance for Micah Parsons.
The offense did their thing as well, with QB Dak Prescott completing his first 13 throws on the way to 31 completions and two touchdowns. The majority of the work within the goal lines went to CeeDee Lamb, who hauled in 11 receptions for 143 yards. Tony Pollard crossed the 100-yard barrier as well with 32 grueling touches for 109 total. Dallas’ 30-10 victory had some memorable moments, here are several of them
The Dallas Cowboys have an offensive line concern heading into the halftime break. CBS Sports’ Tracey Wolfson reported that the one backup offensive lineman who is starting is undergoing x-rays.
Dallas has been without starting left guard Tyler Smith through both games as he nurses a hamstring injury suffered early in the practice week ahead of the season opener. He was replaced in the starting lineup by Chuma Edoga, a free agent pickup this offseason, formerly of the New York Jets. Edoga left the first half early to get his elbow looked at
