The Jets avoided the total solar eclipse by practicing indoors. In fact, they didn't even practice; it was just a 90-minute walk-through, ending at 2:30 ET. Afterward, some players went outside to view the eclipse with protective glasses. Todd Bowles said the eclipse had nothing to do with the change in practice plans. He said he wanted a light day to allow the team to recover physically from Saturday night's game.

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.

Jets players Darron Lee and Leonard Williams have been cleared by the NFL with regard to offseason incident at NYC concert. "Following a review, we concluded there was insufficient evidence to support a finding that there was a violation of the personal conduct policy," league spokesman Brian McCarthy said in a statement to ESPN. Lee got into an argument with his girlfriend, according to coach Todd Bowles, and was forcibly removed from the altercation by Williams. The incident was caught on cell phone video and went viral.

Red Sox 5, Yankees 1: Two out of three ain't bad. It's also exactly what the Sox needed. For the second weekend in a row, the Red Sox managed to keep the second-place Yankees at arm's length by winning two of three games. Jackie Bradley Jr. drove in three runs, including a tone-setting two-run triple in the second inning against Yankees starter Sonny Gray. Rick Porcello tossed six solid innings for his fourth consecutive win.
