Bedard: Isaiah Wynn goes on IR, what now for the Patriots offensive line? Trent Williams?

The Patriots have placed starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn on injured reserve with turf toe according to the NFL's transaction wire and isn't expected to return until Week 10 at the earliest.

Caleb Benenoch, Tampa Bay’s fifth-round pick in 2016, started all 16 games at right guard last season but was a backup at tackle this season. He has played at right tackle at times in his career.

The Patriots lost center David Andrews before the season even started to blood clots, and has been replaced by Ted Karras.

Starting right tackle Marcus Cannon didn't finish the season opener, and missed last week's game with a left shoulder injury.

Here's what Dr. Jessica Flynn had to say on both recent injuries:

Cannon came down hard on his left shoulder in Week 1 and was forced to leave the Patriots’ matchup with the Steelers. The exact nature of the injury is unknown, but the good news is that he traveled with the team to Miami last weekend and was testing the shoulder out pregame with the training staff. All reports point to a possible Week 3 return.

Wynn, who missed last season with an Achilles tear, suffered a toe injury in week 2. He reportedly has turf toe, which is an injury to soft tissues under the first toe. These structures, together named the “plantar plate,” are very important for push-off. Turf toe is a difficult injury to heal and often lingers if it is not fully rested. The Patriots have announced that they are placing Wynn on IR with an ability to return in week 10 at the earliest.

Here's the Wynn injury from the all-22 film (the TV copy didn't reveal much), and then we'll get into the state of the line and guess at the possible starting lineup against the Jets, along with address the possible trade for Redskins Pro Bowler Trent Williams:
