The Jets have received a positive injury update in an area where they are lacking, but they have suffered a setback with a major star.

When it comes to injury updates, you have to take the good with the bad occasionally, and New York Jets fans got a dose of both on November 2.

To begin with the bad, head coach Robert Saleh said during his news conference on deadline day that left tackle Mekhi Becton is still “a couple weeks” away from practicing. “He’s getting closer, his knee feels pretty good,” the Jets’ head coach explained, “but the most important thing is to try and regain some strength back in that knee and that leg.” He’s a large guy, but he’s getting there.”

This is a significant setback from NFL insiders Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport’s initial four-to-six-week timeframes. While these projections always sounded too good to be true, the reality has been more worse than projected, with Saleh’s statements indicating that Becton will be out until at least Week 12.

Another Linebacker Makes a Comeback

Gang Green was down to its practice squad at linebacker during the Week 7 thrashing in New England, and it showed. At the time, the number of injuries at the position had grown to unimaginable proportions, leaving the team with little choices as the season progressed.

C.J. Mosley: Hamstring injury forced him to miss Week 7.
Jarrad Davis will not be able to play in Week 7.
Jamien Sherwood: In Week 7, his Achilles tendon ruptured.
Quincy Williams has been out since Week 7 due to a concussion.
Blake Cashman was forced to leave Week 7 due to a groin issue.
After Week 4, Hamsah Nasirildeen was placed on injured reserve.

Del’Shawn Phillips and Noah Dawkins were the two remaining linebackers at the time, and both spent time on the practice squad this season. The Jets are in much better form heading into Week 9.

This team was led by veterans Mosley and Davis to an emotional victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, and Williams was also involved. The organization revealed that one additional player, a rookie from Florida State, would be returning to practice this week.

S Jarrod Wilson has been signed, while LB Noah Dawkins has been dismissed.

Hamsah Nasirildeen, a linebacker, has also returned to practice.
