Mekhi Becton’s knee gives Jets another injury concern

The Jets injury list grew longer Wednesday with rookie left tackle Mekhi Becton’s addition.

Becton will be limited in practice after suffering a knee injury during Sunday’s loss to the Bills. Jets coach Adam Gase said Becton injured the knee in the middle of the game but did not want to come out.

“We’re going to be careful here today and see how he feels afterwards,” Gase said.

The fact that Becton is practicing at all indicates the injury is not serious. Becton had a strong debut in Buffalo and has a massive challenge this week against the 49ers and their star pass rusher Nick Bosa.

The Jets placed running back Le’Veon Bell, wide receiver Denzel Mims and linebacker Blake Cashman on IR on Tuesday. That means they will be out for at least three weeks.

Linebacker Avery Williamson (hamstring) will be limited in practice Wednesday. Rookie running back La’Mical Perine (ankle) will not practice.
