Sauce Gardner brushes off Zach Wilson Twitter faux pas


Sauce Gardner (calf) appeared on the injury report Wednesday as limited in practice after “somebody fell on me,” in last week’s loss. No reason for alarm. 

“I’m going to be playing Sunday and practicing [Thursday] if they let me,” Gardner told The Post. “I could’ve practiced today, too.” 

Gardner created a social media stir this week when he “liked” a tweet from Cowboys defensive back Jourdan Lewis aimed at Zach Wilson: “You don’t owe your defense????” Lewis’ tweet was over the top of a clip of Wilson missing an easy throw.

Gardner quickly removed the “like” and explained to his followers that it was an accident brought to his attention by the reaction. 

“It’s still got me feeling kind of bad,” Gardner said in the locker room. “I didn’t mean to do that. … I’ll just be scrolling and my finger hits the button. I made a mistake and liked another tweet that didn’t have anything to do with football. 

“The person whose [Wilson criticism] tweet I liked is my boy, so I called him when I was getting treatment and said, ‘I made a mistake.’ He’s like, ‘You have to delete that.’ I’m happy it’s no big deal because it wasn’t supposed to be.”
