Zach Wilson’s mother expresses displeasure after Jets QB hit with water bottle

New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson had a water bottle thrown at him as he walked off the field at MetLife Stadium Monday night following the team’s overtime victory over the Buffalo Bills.

His mother, Lisa, was not happy about it.

The bottle incident was shown during Scott Van Pelt’s portion of the postgame show on ESPN following the broadcast of “Monday Night Football.” Wilson had a touchdown pass in the victory as he was thrust into the game following an injury to Aaron Rodgers.

Lisa Wilson took to her Instagram Stories to express her displeasure.

“This happened after they won the game,” she wrote. “Hit him straight in the head. Great.”

Lisa Wilson recapped the night from her car earlier today. She said she didn’t expect her son to be put in the game and was grateful to have a superstar like Rodgers to help guide her son.

“I thought this was going to be a year of development and growth and learning and that we were all going to be able to sit back and watch this incredible connection that Zach and Aaron have, that Aaron has been so, so good to Zach, and he “I was really amazingly supportive and just held his hand through it all, and he learned so much and it ended quickly,” she said.

“My heart breaks for Aaron because I know how much he loves this game and Zach came in there like he hadn’t really played all week and he had to get up and he had to and he had to play hard and I’m so, so proud of him.”

Lisa Wilson added that being a mother of athletes was “really stressful.”

“At the end of the day, our main job as a mother and a parent is to support them, love them, comfort them and let them know that no matter what, they have a No. 1 fan.”

Jets head coach Robert Saleh said Wilson would be the starting quarterback despite swirling rumors that the team was looking to add a veteran to the roster.

“We’re going to look at some things, but I want to make it very clear: Zach is our quarterback,” Saleh said. “We have a lot of confidence in Zach. We’re really excited about his opportunity, but we’re riding with Zach and we’re excited for it and excited for him.”
