Jets LT Mekhi Becton (knee) carted to locker room
New York Jets starting left tackle Mekhi Becton was carted off the field after a knee injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s season opener at Carolina.
The Jets said the 2020 first-round draft pick was doubtful to return.
Becton, 22, was injured on the same play that rookie quarterback Zach Wilson tossed his first NFL touchdown pass, a 22-yarder to Corey Davis with 1:35 left in the third quarter.
Players took a knee on the field as trainers and head coach Robert Saleh attended to Becton, who limped off the field with assistance before being loaded onto a cart.
Becton started 13 of his 14 games as a rookie in 2020.
