Jets' Mekhi Becton: All clear Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (chest) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Becton exited Week 9's game against the Patriots before the bye week with the chest injury, but he's expected to play in Sunday's game against the Chargers. Expect the rookie out of Louisville to return to his usual role as the team's starting left tackle.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Should not miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (chest) is expected to play Sunday against the Chargers, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

The 21-year-old exited last week's loss to the Patriots after having some issues breathing, but he apparently checked out fine during the bye week. Assuming Becton returns to practice with no issues later in the week, he should be back at his start post at left tackle this weekend.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Will not return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (chest) will not return to Monday's game against the Patriots, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

The Jets were running behind Becton frequently and successfully prior to his exit late in the first quarter. However, It makes sense that they would err on the side of caution with their 2020 first-round pick by keeping him sidelined for the rest of the game. After the contest, head coach Adam Gase stated that Becton will likely undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury, per Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton is considered questionable to return to Monday's game against the Patriots due to a chest injury, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

The Jets were aggressively running to the left behind Becton prior him exiting the contest and doing so successfully. Thus, a quick return would be advantageous for their offense. Expect an update on the 2020 first-round pick's status when there is more clarity on the situation.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Set to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Bills, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Becton missed last week's loss to the Dolphins, so his addition in the lineup will be huge for the protection of Sam Darnold (shoulder), who is also active. The good news is that the Jets' No. 2 and 3 offensive tackles -- George Fant (knee) and Chuma Edoga (calf) -- are also active alongside Becton.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Looks good for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (shoulder), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Becton's likely return is welcome news for quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder), who is slated to rejoin the lineup following a two-game absence of his own. Even though the Jets will get their left tackle back, the offensive line is still banged up heading into the Week 7 matchup. Left guard Alex Lewis (shoulder) is doubtful for the contest, while the Jets' No. 2 and 3 offensive tackles (George Fant and Chuma Edoga) are both questionable with knee and calf injuries, respectively.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Status uncertain for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bills, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

This injury has lingered for nearly a month now, but it's encouraging that Becton practiced all week, albeit in a limited fashion. George Fant (knee) and Chuma Edoga (calf) are both candidates to fill in at left tackle if Becton can't go, but both are considered questionable as well.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Not suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (shoulder) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Becton was listed as doubtful Friday after failing to suit up in practice, so this news isn't surprising. The rookie out of Louisville will miss his second straight contest, so expect George Fant to handle left tackle duties with Chuma Edoga filling in at right tackle.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Trending in wrong direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (shoulder) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins.

Becton picked up this injury in Week 3 and has battled it ever since. It's disappointing since the rookie first-rounder has been one of the lone bright spots for the Jets this season. George Fant is expected to start at left tackle in his place while Chuma Edoga fills in at right tackle.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Sits Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (shoulder) is inactive Week 5 against Arizona.

Becton made a brief -- and likely premature -- appearance on the field Week 4 against Denver, but ultimately couldn't finish the game. He was sidelined from practice the entire week, so it's no surprise to see him sidelined for the home matchup against the Cardinals.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Deemed doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Becton was unable to practice all week, so his chances of playing Sunday certainly seem slim. If he is indeed unable to give it a go, look for Chuma Edoga to replace him at left tackle.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Couldn't play through injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said after Thursday's loss to the Broncos that Becton (shoulder) attempted to play through his injury but wasn't able to finish the game, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Gase called upon Becton, who was clearly at less than 100 percent health, to enter Thursday's contest after just four plays due to Chuma Edoga (shoulder) suffering an injury of his own. At this point, the Jets can only hope that the rookie first-round pick avoided any setbacks while attempting to play Thursday, and that he'll be able to recover in time to suit up against the Cardinals in Week 5.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Officially available Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (shoulder) is active for Thursday's game against the Broncos, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Becton missed the second half of Sunday's loss to the Colts and has since been limited in practice, but he'll give it a go for Thursday Night Football. The Jets may opt to have Conor McDermott stat at left tackle, with Becton serving as a reserve option.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Uncertain for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (shoulder) is questionable for Thursday's game versus the Broncos.

Becton has been limited in practice all week after suffering a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Colts. It's a positive sign that he hasn't missed practice time, but his final status likely won't be revealed until about 90 minutes before Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff. Conor McDermott will likely fill in if Becton sits out.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Could play as soon as Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton's (shoulder) MRI came back better than expected and he has a chance to suit up Thursday against the Broncos, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

This is great news for the impressive rookie left tackle, who was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Colts. Even if Becton can't go on a short week in Week 4, it sounds like he'll almost certainly be available in Week 5 against the Cardinals.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Officially done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (shoulder) won't return to Sunday's game versus the Colts, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

An 11th overall pick in April, Becton has impressed immediately as the team's starting left tackle. He was quickly ruled out of Sunday's game after suffering a shoulder injury, so Chuma Edoga replaced him. He'll need to make a quick recovery ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Broncos.

Jets' Mekhi Becton: Suffers shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Becton (shoulder) is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Colts, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Per Vacchiano, the broadcast team for Sunday's game stated that Becton won't return to the contest, so it's unlikely you'll see him again Sunday. With the rookie from Louisville out, look for Chuma Edoga to take over as the team's starting left tackle.
