New York Jets wide receiver Allen Lazard and offensive tackle Mekhi Becton are listed as inactive for Friday’s game against the visiting Miami Dolphins in East Rutherford, N.J.

Signed to a four-year, $44 million contract in March, Lazard hasn’t provided much bang for the buck thus far this season. He has recorded just 20 catches for 290 yards and a touchdown in 10 games this season.

Lazard, 27, has 189 receptions for 2,526 yards and 21 touchdowns in 67 games (50 starts) with the Green Bay Packers and Jets. He signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2018.

Becton, 24, was carted off the field with an ankle injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills. He had started every game this season after missing the entire 2022 campaign and all but one game in 2021 after knee surgeries.

In addition to Lazard and Becton, the Jets (4-6) listed offensive lineman Austin Deculus, linebacker Sam Eguavoen, defensive lineman Carl Lawson, cornerback Michael Carter II and quarterback Zach Wilson as inactive.

As for the Dolphins (7-3), they listed rookie running back De’Von Achane as inactive due to a lingering knee injury.

After missing four games on injured reserve, Achane returned for last Sunday’s win against the Las Vegas Raiders but aggravated the injury and exited after three offensive snaps.

Achane, 22, has rushed 39 times for 461 yards (11.8 average) and five touchdowns in five games (two starts) this season, adding 10 catches for 71 yards and two scores.

In addition to Achane, the Dolphins listed the following players as inactive: cornerback Eli Apple, wide receivers Chase Claypool and Robbie Chosen, quarterback Skylar Thompson and offensive lineman Robert Jones.
