    Jets OT Becton's knee injury more serious than first thought

    The injury to New York Jets offensive tackle Mekhi Becton's surgically repaired right knee is more serious than initially believed after he left early in practice Monday. A person with direct knowledge of the injury told The Associated Press that Becton will continue to have tests on the knee, and it is unrelated to the one that sidelined him for almost all of last season. NFL Network first reported that the injury to Becton was more concerning than the team originally thought.

    Zach Wilson with another solid practice in Jets' scrimmage

    Zach Wilson took the field at MetLife Stadium for the first time since last season and put together another solid practice. “I really thought it was really good,” coach Robert Saleh said of Wilson's performance Saturday night. Wilson was unofficially 12 of 19 — including four drops by receivers — for 100 yards with a touchdown and an interception as the Jets prepare for their first preseason game next Friday night at Philadelphia.
