Lorenzo Mauldin out another week with hamstring injury

NFL: New York Jets at Cleveland Browns Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Ian Rapoport says Jets edge rusher Lorenzo Mauldin will miss another week with a hamstring injury.

Over the weekend, Manish Mehta indicated the Jets are getting impatient, and an injury settlement with Mauldin is possible in the weeks to come.

Mauldin had a relatively promising rookie season in a situational role in 2015, but it has been all downhill from that. He played his way out of a potential starting role in the preseason two years ago and never played his way back into it. His 2017 was lost to injury, and now this. This training camp was in many ways Mauldin’s last chance to make something of his Jets career, but that opportunity seems to be slipping away.

The Jets lack anything proven off the edge. It, however, appears increasingly likely that Mauldin will still fail to make the team and extend his stay with the Jets for a fourth season.
