New York Jets LT Duane Brown out for opener with shoulder injury

Stung by injuries in the preseason, the New York Jets will be without left tackle Duane Brown for their opener Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens at MetLife Stadium

Brown, 37, who signed a two-year, $20 million contract Aug. 15 to replace the injured Mekhi Becton (out for the season), suffered a shoulder injury in Monday's practice and could be headed to injured reserve

The Jets are evaluating test results and soon will make a decision on whether to place Brown on IR, which would sideline him for a minimum of four games.

The news comes only two days after the Jets announced that quarterback Zach Wilson will miss at least the first three games as he continues to recover from arthroscopic knee surgery.

Brown's injury forces yet another shuffling of the tackle positions, hardly an ideal situation with the opener so close.

Right tackle George Fant, who began camp at left tackle, will move back to that position.
