Backup Jets S Rontez Miles -- and a key special teamed -- has an eye laceration and is being evaluated for a concussion, per the Jets.

For a guy who hasn't received many practice reps, QB Bryce Petty has done a decent job for the Jets. He brings a certain energy to the offense. Petty hasn't delivered in the red zone, but at least he's led a couple of FG drives. Perry's roster spot should be secure.

Safety Rontez Miles is doubtful to return with an eye laceration and also being evaluated for a concussion.

LIONS 13, JETS 0, halftime. It was a brutal half for the Jets' offense, which managed only two first downs and 43 total yards. QB Christian Hackenberg got the surprise start and he struggled in five possessions, completing only two of six passes for 14 yards. He didn't get much help from a shaky offensive line, but he showed his inexperience. Bryce Petty is expected to play the second half.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The best thing that can be said about Jets QB Christian Hackenberg: He's getting great experience tonight. His performance ... uh, that's another story. He's 1-for-5 for 17 yards, with two sacks. In 12 preseason possessions, he has yet to generate any points.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

A sneak preview for the Jets? Quite possibly. The Christian Hackenberg-led offense has gone three and out on its first three possessions -- no first downs. With no playmakers on the perimeter, the Jets are getting suffocated at the line of scrimmage. Get used to it.

In a surprise, Christian Hackenberg is starting at quarterback for the Jets. He took a lot of first-team reps in practice on Thursday, but Todd Bowles said he didn't anticipate any lineup changes. Bowles told CBS TV before the kickoff that Josh McCown won't play tonight. What does this mean? It means Hackenberg has a great opportunity to state his case for the starting job.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets' starting offense: QB Christian Hackenberg , RB Bilal Powell, FB Julian Howsare, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, WR Robby Anderson and Jalin Marshall, OL Kelvin Beachum, James Carpenter, Wesley Johnson, Brian Winters and Brandon Shell.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Inactive tonight for the Jets: RB Matt Forte, WR Lucky Whitehead, WR Marquess Wilson, CB Xavier Coleman, LB Lorenzo Mauldin, LB Frank Beltre, WR Quincy Enunwa and WR Dan Williams. No surprises here.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

A couple of challenges tonight for the Jets: The Lions play at a fast pace -- they used a lot of no-huddle last week -- so that will test the Jets' ability to communicate on defense and get lined up quickly. The offense will have to deal with crowd noise at Ford Field. It won't be regular-season loud, but it could put some stress on the offense. They practiced all week with artificial crowd noise.

One Jet makes 'Perfect NFL Roster'

This 53-man group chosen from across the league fits beneath the $167 million salary cap. Rontez Miles made the team as a sub.

Predicting fantasy over/unders for Jets

Seven starts for Christian Hackenberg? 215 total touches for Bilal Powell? Rich Cimini makes his predictions for Jets over/unders.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets rookie report: WR ArDarius Stewart is off to a slow start in training camp, perhaps because he's still working his way into shape. Remember, he missed most of the offseason with groin and thumb injuries that required surgery. The Jets have high expectations for their third-round pick, but he hasn't stood out on the practice field. WR Chad Hansen (fourth round) has made more plays than Stewart. Today, he outmuscled CB Juston Burris on a 50-50 ball. In theory, Hansen and Stewart should be able to secure roles in this young and unproven receiving corps, but they'll need to rally.

Jets coach Todd Bowles didn't name his quarterback rotation for Saturday night, but the expectation is that Josh McCown and Christian Hackenberg will get most of the work. McCown and Hackenberg shared first-team reps today, as usual. Look for McCown to start. He played only nine snaps last week, so he needs work and continuity with the first-team offense.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets injury report: LB Lorenzo Mauldin aggravated a back injury, didn't practice and won't play Saturday night, per Todd Bowles. RB Matt Forte (hamstring) also won't play. RB Bilal Powell (neck), who has been practicing, will make his debut against the Lions. WR Quincy Enunwa (neck), out for the season, has opted for surgery. WR Daniel Williams (concussion) is out.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Christian Hackenberg gets the first QB reps in what is a game plan-oriented practice (game on Saturday). Interesting.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

No practice again for Jets RB Matt Forte (hamstring), who has missed 2+ weeks. Obviously, he won't play Saturday.
