The reported decision follows Wilson’s benching in the third quarter of Sunday’s 32-6 loss to AFC East rival Buffalo.
Boyle, 29, completed seven passes for 33 yards and one interception after replacing Wilson with just over two minutes left in the third. Wilson finished the day 7 of 15 for 81 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Head coach Robert Saleh remained committed to Wilson throughout the season despite mounting criticism and even praised his growth. But on Sunday, Saleh was noncommittal about his starting status on a short week and will play another division rival on Friday.

“We’re going to watch the tape and make a decision (Monday),” he said of this week’s game against the Miami Dolphins. “We’ll look at it all. I’m not really answering those questions yet.”
Friday could mark Boyle’s fourth NFL start and first since 2021 with the Detroit Lions.
“I have to say this, I’m very proud of Zach. The way he’s handled everything this year, he’s done a really good job,” Boyle said Sunday night.

“He’s been extremely encouraging to me in the fourth quarter. He’s earned a lot of respect from me and I think a lot of respect from the offense. So my heart goes out to him. Obviously, it’s not a comfortable situation, but it’s been wonderful.”
Rodgers is reportedly considering an early return sometime in December, but it will likely depend on whether the Jets have any playoff potential.
