Jets head coach Adam Gase gave an update on the condition of rookie left tackle Mekhi Becton‘s condition on Tuesday afternoon.

Becton was forced out of Monday night’s loss to the Patriots after playing just 15 snaps. Gase said the team did “all sorts of things” to see if Becton could go back in, but ultimately decided that it was better to be cautious with their first-round pick.

“It was a chest injury that caused him to have difficulty breathing,” Gase said, via Andy Vasquez of NorthJersey.com.

Gase said that Becton’s injury is not muscular in nature and that the team is hopeful to have Becton back in the lineup after the bye week.

  1. Wasn’t he popped for roids at the Combine? I smell another top 15 bust for the Jets.

    Anyone notice how bad Jamal Adams was on Sunday? He is horrible.

    The Jets love to pimp their 1st rd picks, but if you really pay attention, you will see that these players are not as good as claimed by the ny media.

  2. The Jets give their fans trouble breathing year after year with their horribleness. Hope this dude is ok though.

    – No. No, he wasn’t. Happy to clear that up for you.

    Dilute sample, supposedly to mask recent use of weed. No suggestion at all of steroid use.

  4. Guessing he hurt a rib. Wish him well, but does it matter if he will be back after the bye week? Does it matter if any Jet will be back? When you are Zero on the year, what does it matter if someone is out for a couple of weeks or not? The Jets are a Hot Mess. But First in the Trevor Lawrence Sweepstakes!

    The guy is 6’7″ and 360 lbs. I don’t think he needs steroids. Not unless he is using them to cut is body fat.

  6. Even if the Jets do get Trevor Lawrence, I wonder if Lawrence will do what Eli Manning did……refusingto play for (in this case) the jets?

    I was surprised that Joe Burrow didn’t complain about going to the Bengals, so who knows.
