Jets LT Mekhi Becton Reportedly Out 4-6 Weeks with Knee Injury

The New York Jets, who allowed six sacks in their season opener, suffered a significant blow to their offensive line Monday with the news that left tackle Mekhi Becton will be sidelined a minimum of four to six weeks with a dislocated right knee cap.

Becton, their 2020 first-round draft pick, will seek a second opinion to determine whether surgery is necessary, coach Robert Saleh said. Earlier Monday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Becton is expected to have arthroscopic surgery to repair cartilage damage.

Without Becton, the Jets will move Fant to left tackle, his natural position. Moses, who started the season on the bench after losing out to Fant in the right-tackle competition, will become the starter on the right side. His streak of 96 straight starts, all with the Washington Football Team, was snapped on Sunday.
