In the “prepare for the worst, hope for the best” category, the prepare for the worst category

has unfortunately won out for Jets offensive tackle Mekhi Becton.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports Becton suffered an avulsion fracture of his right kneecap.

Garafolo reports Becton will see a surgeon tomorrow. Head coach Robert Saleh confirmed to the media after practice

Tuesday that Becton’s season is likely over with a fractured kneecap.

Connor Hughes of SNY reported Monday that this was the likely outcome for Becton as a result of the injury.

”We love Becton. His ride is not over,” Saleh said. Assuming Becton’s season is over,

he will have played just one game out of a possible 34 since the start of the 2020 season

Now eyes turn to the ongoing talks with free agent Duane Brown,
