Report: Jets OL Mekhi Becton leaves practice early

New York Jets offensive tackle Mekhi Becton limped off the practice field Monday with an apparent knee injury, ESPN reported.

The 2020 first-round draft pick had his right knee surgically repaired after suffering a dislocated kneecap and MCL sprain in the 2021 season opener. He missed the rest of the season.

Becton, 23, was activated from the physically unable to perform list when the Jets opened training camp last month in Florham Park, N.J.

The Jets selected Becton No. 11 overall in 2020 and he went on to start 13 of 14 games at left tackle in his rookie season. He is moving to right tackle this season, with George Fant on the left side.
