"Jets Deliver Shocking Update Regarding Five-Time Pro Bowler"
New York Jets' left tackle Duane Brown is placed on injured reserve due to a hip injury.
Brown's absence will affect quarterback Zach Wilson's protection for more than just Week 3.
Coach Robert Saleh had initially hoped Brown would be able to play against the Patriots.
Questions arise about who will replace Brown at left tackle, with Mekhi Becton as a potential option.
Becton had shifted to right tackle permanently this offseason, but Saleh indicates that a last-minute change isn't advisable.
Billy Turner, with extensive starting experience, is a likely candidate to step in.
Turner, who joined the Jets on a one-year deal, has primarily played at right tackle, and any shift to the left side would require an adjustment.
Max Mitchell, another option, primarily played right tackle last season.
The Jets' offensive line adjustments will be crucial in protecting quarterback Zach Wilson.
The team faces decisions regarding their O-line strategy as they aim to safeguard Wilson during his starting role.
