After a few days off, we’re back like we never left. Welcome to the Morning After Huddle! We’re not the only ones back: so is football (preseason that is).
Here’s what you need to know:
- To start, the entire state of New York is breathing a collective sigh of relief. During Saturday’s slate of preseason games, starting Jets QB Zach Wilson injured himself in what appears a non-contact play. Doctors are diagnosing Wilson with a bone bruise and a meniscus tear that requires surgery this week. The expected timeline for recovery is anywhere from 2-6 weeks, but doctors will know more once they perform surgery. It remains to be seen who will step in for Wilson.
- Next, there are lots of storylines out of this weekend’s games, but one that adds to the chaos is Browns QB Deshaun Watson apologizing to the women impacted by his actions. For the first time, Watson acknowledges his role in his sexual misconduct allegation and offers these words: “I want to say that I’m truly sorry to all of the women that I have impacted in this situation.” After the game, Watson did not add anything to his words. The timing of this is peculiar given that the suspension for Watson is still pending.
- Finally, your Key Signings Roundup is chalked full of action. Rosters got down to 85 players yesterday.
Catch up with us tomorrow! The Morning After is back with more news you definitely want to know.
