DETROIT -- The New York Jets' already-thin backfield took another hit Friday, as backup RBJohn Griffin suffered a season-ending broken leg in the 26-17 loss to the Detroit Lions

Griffin, backing up Bilal Powell, was yanked to the ground in the third quarter on a horse-collar tackle by LB Travis Lewis. Griffin was carted to the locker room, where an X-ray confirmed the fracture.

Andrew Weber/USA TODAY SportsJohn Griffin's season ended in the preseason opener.

He was on the roster bubble, but at least he was an able body. The Jets are hurting at the position. Chris Ivory(hamstring) and Joe McKnight (head) didn't travel to the game, and Mike Goodson still hasn't reported to camp because of undisclosed personal reasons. Ivory is expected to practice for the first time Sunday. 

The Jets' running attack was non-existent, as they ran for only 37 yards on 16 carries. 

INJURY REPORT: Aside from Griffin, QB Geno Smith (ankle) and OLB Garrett McIntyre (knee) left with injuries. Smith's injury doesn't appear serious. He said he told the trainers that he wants to practice next week and play next Saturday against the Jaguars. 

UNHAPPY REX: A subdued Rex Ryan bemoaned a rash of mistakes -- 11 penalties, two turnovers, a poor rushing attack and sloppy play by the second-team defense. 

"We have to improve a great deal," he said. 

It was a particularly sloppy day for the offensive line. RG Willie Colon was called for holding and a false start and LG Stephen Peterman, a former Lion, was flagged for holding. Backup OT Oday Aboushi was guilty of a false start. 

Ryan singled out only two players for exceptional performances -- WR Ben Obomanu (team-high four catches) and S Jaiquawn Jarrett (five tackles, one QB hit). Ryan said Jarrett will move up to the first team in practice next week, replacing Antonio Allen

SPECIAL K: It was a nice debut for TE Kellen Winslow, trying to resurrect his career after a lost 2012. He caught two passes for 30 yards, including a 24-yard reception that helped set up the first touchdown. He caught a short pass and broke a tackle, displaying some of the old Winslow. 

He was cut by the Seahawks last preseason and played only one game with the Patriots. 

"That was their loss," he said of the Seahawks. "I'm going to do some things this year." 

ODDS AND ENDS: Rookie CB Dee Milliner received mixed reviews. "At times, I thought he played really well," Ryan said. But there was a missed tackle in the open field, a 27-yard completion against him and a couple of mentor errors. ... DT Sheldon Richardson, who was credited with three tackles, said he didn't make as many plays as he had hoped. ... Rookie WR Zach Rogers had a bad drop in the open field, but he came back to score on an 11-yard pass from Greg McElroy. ... McElroy, one of the stars of last week's scrimmage, delivered another fine outing. He replaced the injured Smith in the third quarter and was 11-for-19, 145 yards and a touchdown. ... Nick Folk made a 51-yard FG. ... Muhammad Wilkerson andQuinton Coples recorded sacks. Coples cleaned up after LB Antwan Barnes made the key pressure.

Perhaps the bigger story-line here is that Cimini got through an entire article without blasting the Jets.  hmmm

Rex Ryan: Jaiquawn Jarrett Stepped Up in Detroit

Posted 50 minutes ago

  •  

Rex Ryan left no doubt about some of the players that stood out to him during Friday's 26-17 loss to the Lions in Detroit, mostly in the second half: S Jaiquawn Jarrett and WR Ben Obomanu.

"We'll put him out there with the ones next week," Ryan said of Jarrett. "You talk about playing like a Jet, that guy was in there and he did a tremendous job of hitting, communicating. I really liked the way he stepped up."

 

Jarrett finished with five tackles, second on the night for the Jets behind S Josh Bush's six tackles, plus a special teams assist. He also applied a quarterback hit. He also was in for 61 plays, the most by any player in the game, 50 coming on defense and 11 on teams.

 

 

Obomanu led the Green & White with four receptions, all but one in the second half, and a game-leading 59 receiving yards in helping QB Greg McElroy move the second offense to a pair of third-quarter scores.

 

Ryan also left no doubt about where he thought was the Jets' biggest issue in Friday's 26-17 loss to the Lions.

"Obviously, we've got to do a heck of a lot of improving. I think the biggest factor in the game was 11 penalties," the Jets head coach said. "When you keep putting yourself in first-and-20's, behind the sticks, that makes it extremely difficult."

 

“We didn’t play the type of ball that we know we can play,” T D’Brickashaw Ferguson said. “We’ve got to make sure that we continue to focus on the small details and improve our game next week.”

 

The Jets actually were hit with 13 yellow flags, with only 11 of them being marked off for 85 yards. They led to three first-and-20's plus a second-and-16 and a second-and-29. Rookie T Oday Aboushi struggled with a hold, a false start and an illegal use of hands (declined) and yielded the strip sack of McElroy to rookie DE Devin Taylor. Two penalties each were assessed against G Willie Colon and LBs Antwan Barnes and Ricky Sapp

.

Kellen Back in the Swing

 

TE Kellen Winslow played in his first game in 11 months and looked smooth with a pair of catches for 30 yards, with the big play a 24-yard catch-and-run from Mark Sanchez to start the 80-yard TD drive in the first quarter.

 

"I just got open and did my job," Winslow said. "Mark put it right on the money and I broke a tackle. I should've broken the other tackle, too."

 

Yardage Highs and Lows

 

The Jets totaled 317 gross passing yards at Detroit, the first time they were over 300 yards in a preseason game since throwing for 306 vs. New Orleans and 318 at Green Bay in the first two games of the 2000 preseason.

 

On the other hand, their 37 rushing yards for the night against the Lions since they rushed for 26 yards in their 1982 game against the Giants.

 

Even-Steven for Kickers

 

Not much separation was evident in the Jets' two kicking competitions.

 

Nick Folk nailed a 51-yard field goal — the third time he's hit a 50-yarder in the last three preseasons — plus an extra point, and had two kickoff touchbacks (one kicked from the 40). Billy Cundiff had a PAT and two touchbacks.

 

In the punting area, it was also even. Robert Malone and Ryan Quigley each had three punts, one inside-the-20 and one touchback. Malone had a 50.3-yard gross and 40.7 net, Quigley a 47.3 gross and 39.7 net.

#27TheDominator, just like I told you months ago. You can pencil in Jarret being an impact player for us as it was crazy that who ever had the position break down thread didn't include him in in the 1st two units.

Big L .. you can freestyle so good i have so many question's.. You got sick multi syllable content !

 

But no seriously.. we need a steady running attack and the O line to get it together or we will have us Teddy or Clowney.. ! 

Which doesn't seem so bad.
