Jets QB Christian Hackenberg took the blame for the sack/fumble on the third play on Saturday night's loss to the Lions. "We could've checked to something else, probably maxed it, got some protection," said Hackenberg, who was crushed by the unblocked Cornelius Washington. "It was a good learning experience. I thought they were bringing something and they adjusted, and they did a good job of bringing what I thought they weren't going to bring." Translation: He got outfoxed by the Lions.

Jets injury report: LB Lorenzo Mauldin's back injury is healing "slowly," per coach Todd Bowles, who said Mauldin may need an epidural shot to relieve pain. Not good news for the third-year linebacker, who could lose his starting job and perhaps his roster spot. LB Darron Lee (illness) and S Rontez Miles (eye laceration) didn't participate in practice, which was just a walk through. RB Matt Forte (hamstring) was present and did light work on the side.
