Podcast: Mekhi Becton Done for the Year

Photo by Rich Schultz/ Last night the Jets got bad news on Mekhi Becton’s status. Becton left Monday’s practice with a knee injury. It was the same knee that cost him almost the entire 2021 season. After initial testing Monday afternoon provided optimism, further testing Monday evening had the Jets fearing the worst. Tuesday it was revealed that Becton will likely miss the entire 2022 season. This is just awful news on numerous levels. A young player who just went through a difficult rehab will have to go through another. He will miss a second formative year of his...

Mekhi Becton Likely Out for the Year With Knee Injury

Photo by Rich Schultz/ Jets tackle Mekhi Becton will likely miss the full 2022 season according to Ian Rapoport. #Jets OT Mekhi Becton has suffered an avulsion fracture of the right knee cap, per me and @MikeGarafolo. He’s seeing a surgeon tomorrow, but likely is out for the year. Brutal.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 9, 2022 Jets head coach Robert Saleh confirmed the report. Robert Saleh says Mekhi Becton is getting a second evaluation, but the “inevitable” seems at this point that the offensive tackle will miss the season. #Jets— Dennis Waszak Jr....

New York Jets Flight Connections 8/9/22

Photo by Mike Comer/ Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jets Good morning, Gang Green Nation. I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. The Jets defensive line had a great practice yesterday, but that didn’t stop Zach Wilson from looking cool and calm under pressure. Wilson played great, looking poised and making the right decisions more often than not. It’s what you want to see from the second year player so far in camp. The bigger story however, is the injury of Mekhi Becton. Becton was limping in individual drills, and was absolutely...

Reports: Jets Now Fear the Worst on Mekhi Becton’s Injury

Photo by John Jones/Icon Sportswire via Even after Mekhi Becton left Monday’s practice with an injury, Jets head coach Robert Saleh struck a hopeful tone. The team’s initial assessment was that Becton’s injury was likely not serious. Things have apparently changed since Becton has received more extensive testing. #Jets OT Mekhi Becton’s knee injury is more concerning than the team originally believed following practice today, sources tell me and @RapSheet. It’s a new injury and unrelated to his previous knee injury. Becton has additional medical...

Podcast: As the Jets Look to Upgrade Tackle Depth, Mekhi Becton Suffers an Injury

Photo by Rich Schultz/ Over the weekend the Jets brought in veteran tackle Duane Brown for a free agent visit. The Jets are lacking in tackle depth. A year ago they found themselves in a fortunate situation as Morgan Moses ended up cut late in the offseason. Without many options, Moses had to take a cheap deal and a backup job for the Jets. That move ended up paying dividends when Mekhi Becton got hurt. Unfortunately for the Jets Becton got hurt against on Monday. Preliminary reports suggest the injury is unlikely to be overly serious, but the news of a Becton injury...

Photo by Rich Schultz/ The Jets return to the practice field today as training camp resumes from the team facility in Florham Park, New Jersey. The Jets had Sunday off. That was because Saturday’s practice was a night one at MetLife Stadium. The team conducted something resembling a scrimmage, as close to real football as you can get in training camp these days. By all accounts it was a strong night for Zach Wilson. As the team returns to practice today, focus will turn to Friday’s preseason game against the Eagles. The Jets only have a few days left to prepare....

Shout out to Mr. Wells for holding down the fort over the weekend as usual. The Jets had their annual Green and White scrimmage over the weekend, and there was plenty to take away from it. One of the biggest factors was QB Zach Wilson, who started out incredibly strong. While he ended up throwing only one touchdown to one interception, he looked poised - making better decisions and taking what the defense...

For Jets fans eager to get a good look at the team likely to take the field when the games count, this is the one to focus on. The starters should get a good deal of action against the Falcons.

What Are the Chances Denzel Mims Can Turn His Career Around?

What Are the Chances Denzel Mims Can Turn His Career Around?

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Speculation about third year Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims has been growing recently in the media. The former second round pick’s career has been disappointing to date. Though two seasons Mims does not even have a touchdown reception. Multiple hamstring injuries forced him to miss the first seven games of his rookie season. A rough offseason program which included a bout of food poisoning was the start of a disaster second season that saw Mims fall way down the depth chart. By the end of 2021, he couldn’t even seem to get lined up correctly....
