  • Jets' Mekhi Becton: Not expected to play Sunday

    Coach Robert Saleh said Monday that Becton (knee) is progressing well but still not practicing, and he isn't expected to play Sunday against the Eagles, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

    Saleh said that Becton will progress to doing field work this week, but he still isn't participating in practice, which means he remains on injured reserve. The 2020 first-round pick hasn't played since the Jets' first game of the season due to arthroscopic knee surgery, but he appears close to making his return. George Fant and Morgan Moses are expected to once again start at the offensive tackle spots against the Eagles in Week 13.

  • Jets' Mekhi Becton: Needs more time

    Becton (knee) is still 1-to-3 weeks away from returning according to head coach Robert Saleh, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

    Becton hasn't played since the Jets' first game of the season, subsequently undergoing arthroscopic surgery. It was expected he could miss as much as eight weeks, a timeframe that's already elapsed. Becton, who was the Jets' 2020 first-round selection, will continue to aim for a 2021 return.

  • Jets' Mekhi Becton: Still not ready

    Becton (knee) is still a couple of weeks away from starting to practice, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

    Becton sprained his MCL in the Jets' first game of the season and ultimately had to undergo arthroscopic surgery on Sept. 21. It was determined that he would miss four to eight weeks and a couple weeks from now would put him on the later end of that timeline. Becton, who was the Jets' 2020 first-round selection, will keep working to make it back before the 2021 season comes to a close.
