The New York Jets will be without their blind-side blocker for over a quarter of the season.
Becton will undergo arthroscopic surgery to remove loose bodies from his knee. Rapoport added that Becton also suffered an MCL sprain to go along his dislocated knee cap.
The second-year starter went down in pain late in the third quarter and was carted off the field.
The news is a blow to the Jets, who watched the line struggle in front of rookie Zach Wilson in Week 1. Wilson was sacked six times and was constantly running for his life in the 19-14 loss. The pressure ramped up after Becton went down.
It's the latest setback for the former first-round pick who dealt with a foot injury this offseason.
