NFL: JAN 03 Jets at Patriots

The Jets signed veteran Duane Brown to step in as their starting left tackle after Mekhi Becton‘s season-ending knee injury, but an injury of his own has forced the Jets to change plans.

Brown missed practice this week with a shoulder injury and was ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Ravens on Friday. He will miss at least three more games as well because he was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

George Fant is expected to move back to left tackle after kicking to the right side in the wake of the Brown signing. Rookie Max Mitchell will start at right tackle.

The Jets also promoted tackle Grant Hermanns from the practice squad.

  1. Didn’t participate in any training camp because he was a free agent and was trying to stay healthy, gets injured anyways.

  2. My team had a need for a vet O lineman, kind of still does. All the teams silly YouTube channels operated by fans all wanted him but I kept saying in the comments he wants a payday, doesn’t really wanna play though. Not sure how on earth a Jets GM wasn’t able to see that.

  3. I seriously feel bad for Wilson this kid is in such a bad position. The Jets have ruined every rookie Quarterback they have signed for decades.
