This news is quite the backtrack from Sunday’s post-game comments from Saleh. According to SNY’s Connor Hughes, Saleh told reporters that a quarterback change was the “furthest thing” from his mind after the game. He may have caught on to several reports about the locker room’s frustration with Wilson or the quarterback’s choice not to take the blame for Sunday’s loss after the defense allowed just three points. If Wilson is benched, Saleh will have to choose between Joe Flacco and Mike White for Sunday’s matchup with the Chicago Bears.
In 2022, Wilson has completed 55.6 percent of his passes for 1,279 yards, four touchdowns, and five interceptions in seven starts.
