OT - NYJ
Week 8 Outlook
Jets first-round pick and starting left tackle Mekhi Becton is officially active for the team's Week 7 matchup against the Buffalo Bills despite being listed as questionable with a shoulder injury.
The Jets are also getting Sam Darnold back today, and he will have his starting left tackle back to protect him. The Jets have been awful this season but should be improved going forward now that they are starting to get healthy on the offensive side of the ball. Rookie wide receiver Denzel Mims is also making his NFL debut on Sunday.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Jets OL Mekhi Becton (shoulder) "should be good to go" for Week 7.
Like Sam Darnold, Becton has been sidelined since Week 4 with a shoulder injury but is expected to play in Sunday's matchup against the Bills. Becton's impending return will vastly improve a New York front five that must slow down the Buffalo pass rush to give Darnold a chance to effectively get the ball out.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting Jets LT Mekhi Becton (shoulder) is ruled out for Week 6.
Becton will miss his second straight game with a shoulder injury leaving Chuma Edoga as the starter. This bodes well for a Miami pass rush that has been getting after enemy quarterbacks in the past three games following a sluggish start. It will be a long day for Joe Flacco.
OL Mekhi Becton (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday’s Week 6 contest against the Dolphins.
Becton was inactive for Sunday’s Week 5 contest against the Cardinals and is trending in the wrong direction for Week 6. He returned to practice Friday, but continues to deal with a shoulder injury and may need additional time to fully recover. If Becton is ruled out, look for Chuma Edoga to replace him at left tackle.
OL Mekhi Becton (shoulder) doesn't practice Thursday.
Becton did not practice on Thursday and most likely will miss Sunday's Week 6 matchup against the Dolphins. If he is unable to go, look for Chuma Edoga to replace him at LT.
