New York Jets starting left tackle Mekhi Becton suffered a knee cap dislocation in Sunday’s loss to the Carolina Panthers, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday.
Becton went down in pain late in the third quarter and was carted off the field.
Rapoport added that there is currently no timeline for Becton’s recovery.
The news is a blow to the Jets, who watched the line struggle in front of rookie Zach Wilson in Week 1. Wilson was sacked six times and was constantly running for his life in the 19-14 loss. The pressure ramped up after Becton went down.
It’s the latest setback for the former first-round pick who dealt with a foot injury this offseason.
When Becton exited, George Fant moved to left tackle, and Morgan Moses played on the right side.
