Zach Wilson’s first career touchdown pass could be a costly one for the New York Jets after former first-round draft pick Mekhi Becton was carted off the field with a knee injury.

Wilson would throw a 22-yard touchdown to Corey Davis to put the Jets on the board for the first time late in the third quarter but the celebration was cut short as second-year offensive tackle Becton lay on the ground in pain. 

He was helped off the field before being carted to the locker room.

The Jets listed him as doubtful to return with a right knee injury.

The Carolina Panthers start their season off 1-0 after defeating the Jets 19-14.
