Jets' Becton out 4-6 weeks; will miss Patriots game
Tue, Sep 14th 8:32pm EDT
Becton's injury news could be one of the reasons that the Patriots went from -5 to -5.5 points earlier this week, per BettingPros consensus odds. Becton was the team's first-round draft pick in 2020, and was to be counted upon to protect rookie quarterback Zach Wilson's blindside. You can bet Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will look to exploit Becton's absence as much as possible, but the loss is not as big as one would think for the Jets, who can move George Fant from right tackle to his more natural position at left tackle.
