New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson suffered a significant leg injury during last Sunday’s outing against the New England Patriots. The youngster’s right knee got twisted on a hit by linebacker Matthew Judon, ultimately forcing him out of the game.
On Monday Zach underwent an MRI which confirmed he had suffered a sprained PCL – an injury that will sideline him for anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks.
Unfortunately, Zach’s rough run didn’t end there.
Ever since he got drafted, Zach’s mom, Lisa, has been a lightning rod for various online scrutiny. The trend continued this week, when she angered off a bunch of folks on social media with her most recent Instagram post.
What got people so up in arms? Recently, In-N-Out made the news for refusing to enforce verification of customer COVID-19 vaccination statuses.
Lisa came out in support of In-N-Out shortly thereafter:
The response was swift:

Lisa is no stranger to going viral. Between her now-infamous “crack whore” incident, subsequent bounce back, and various partying ways – she often finds herself in the news. Sometimes it’s a good thing for Zach, as it distracts folks from his rookie struggles. Other times, it shines an unnecessary light on the entire family.
Either way, it’s clear Lisa isn’t going to let public scrutiny get to her. She’s going to live her life the way she has been no matter what anyone says.
Now that’s how you dress up for Halloween. https://t.co/LccrbXNQv5

Will that eventually endear her to the New York fan base that her son is trying desperately to win over? Time will tell.
