Jets' Mekhi Becton returns, but limited in practice

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – The Jets’ offensive line has sprung some leaks lately, but they’re close to getting their biggest blocker back.

Rookie left tackle Mekhi Becton participated in team drills after not practicing at all twice last week because of a shoulder injury. This has Adam Gase encouraged that Becton could return after a two-game absence.

"The fact that we’re going to have him out at practice he’ll be able to do team reps that’s a good feeling." Gase said. "Any time we can get in a situation where at least we’re starting the week where it looks like things are heading in the right direction, we just got to go through each day and see what it brings.
