Despite initial optimism, things have been trending in this direction for Becton after he went down in practice on Monday. 

It’s a rough blow for the Jets and Becton after the former first-round pick went down in Week 1 of last season and missed the entire year. The injury this year is to the same knee, although it’s a different injury. 

Becton, 23, was a three-year starter at Louisville and earned second-team All-American honors before being selected by the Jets with the No. 11 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Becton signed a four-year, $18,446,045 rookie contract that included a $10,975,306 signing bonus. The contract also includes a fifth year for the Jets to pick up for the 2024 season. 

In 2021, Becton was limited to appearing in just one game for the Jets due to a knee injury.
