On the play prior, Wilson was hit by defensive lineman Lawrence Guy, which wasn’t flagged for Roughing the Passer, despite the questionable tackle.
After returning to the locker room, the Jets would officially list Wilson as questionable to return with a knee injury. The Jets would later rule him out just after the start of the second half.

Here’s the latest on Wilson’s injury:
Soon after the conclusion of the Jets loss to the Patriots, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that the initial fear of the Jets is an injury to Wilson’s PCL, and an MRI would determine the severity. An MRI on Monday confirmed the injury, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, and Wilson is expected to miss just 2-to-4 weeks while recovering from the injury.
The Jets have yet to place Wilson on IR, if that is an option.
An MRI confirmed a sprained PCL for Jets’ QB Zach Wilson, who now is expected to be sidelined 2-4 weeks, per source.

Wilson and the Jets offense got off to yet another sluggish start, with Wilson going 6-of-10 passing and a near interception on the play on which he was injured. The Patriots would take advantage, taking a 31-7 halftime lead.
In relief, backup quarterback Mike White capped off the drive following Wilson’s injury with a three-yard touchdown pass to Corey Davis to close the gap to 17-7.
The Patriots took the first meeting with the Jets, earning a 25-6 Week 2 victory.
