Fresh off his successful season debut, New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson is battling an ankle injury that limited him in Wednesday's practice.

Wilson led the Jets to a victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, throwing for 252 yards and a touchdown while also catching a TD pass. It was his first game back from knee surgery.

Jets coach Robert Saleh said Wilson would be limited Wednesday but will be "fine" to play in the Jets' Week 5 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Wilson, 23, was sidelined for the first three games of the season as he recovered from arthroscopic surgery performed on Aug. 16. He sustained a meniscus tear and a bone bruise on a non-contact injury in the Aug. 12 preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The No. 2 pick in the 2021 draft, Wilson missed time last season with a torn PCL in the same knee. He was 3-10 as a starter with nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
