Zach Wilson will make his return to the starting lineup in Week 12 after missing the past four games with a knee injury, according to The Athletics’ Connor Hughes.

Wilson got healthy just in time, as Joe Flacco and Mike White landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday, according to ESPN’s Field Yates. Both will miss Week 12. White tested positive for the virus, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, while Flacco was added as a close contact. Flacco said last week that he wasn’t vaccinated.

Josh Johnson will be promoted from the practice squad as Wilson’s backup for Week 12, per Hughes.

The decision to start Wilson was made independent of the Flacco and White news, according to Hughes. Wilson was medically cleared to practice in full Monday night, while Flacco and White were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday morning.

Wilson will face the Texans in his first game back when New York plays in Houston this Sunday.
