  • Lorenzo Mauldin: Earns New Orleans tryout

    Mauldin worked out for the Saints on Wednesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

    Mauldin had previously been dealing with a hamstring issue but has seemingly put any lingering affects in the rearview mirror. It's unclear whether the Saints are doing their due diligence or have plans to sign Mauldin to the practice squad. Either way, Mauldin will likely have to wait until 2019 to make a name for himself again.

  • Jets' Lorenzo Mauldin: Out with hamstring injury

    Mauldin has been ruled out for one week due to a hamstring injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    This is unfortunate news for Mauldin, who just recently returned to full health after undergoing season-ending back surgery last September. In being ruled out for another week, Mauldin will miss his second straight preseason game, something he can ill afford given that he's currently sitting on the roster bubble.

  • Jets' Lorenzo Mauldin: Back to normal

    Mauldin recently said that he feels fully healthy after requiring season-ending back surgery last September, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports. "I'm out there running at the same speed that I was before. I'm definitely staying in the training room so that I can stay healthy this year," Mauldin said.

    Heading into 2017, Mauldin showed some promise as a rotational linebacker, racking up 6.5 sacks in his first 26 career games. The 2015 third-round choice has a chance to pick up where he left off if he can prove the back injury is behind him. However, Mauldin will first need to fend off Josh Martin -- the player who replaced him last season -- for a starting role at outside linebacker.

  • Jets' Lorenzo Mauldin: Likely to require season-ending surgery

    Mauldin has a herniated disc in his back and is expected to require season-ending surgery, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

    The Jets had already placed Mauldin on injured reserve prior to the season, so he won't be eligible to return until after Week 8 regardless if surgery is necessary or not. Mauldin will receive a second opinion before reaching a determination on treatment for his back, but it doesn't appear promising that he'll suit up at any point in 2017.

  • Jets' Lorenzo Mauldin: Placed on IR

    Mauldin (back) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Connor Hughes of reports.

    Mauldin could return to the Jets' active roster later this season if his back injury subsides, but the earliest he could take the field for game-action would be Week 8. The linebacker missed almost all of the preseason after injuring his back during the Jets' opening week scrimmage. Mauldin has been a key cog in the Jets defense for the past two seasons, recording 33 tackles and 6.5 sacks over a span of 26 games. To replace the third-year pro, the Jets brought in veteran Bruce Carter, whom they originally waived Sunday.

    Mauldin (back) is unlikely to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.

    Mauldin has been dealing with a persistent back injury for a couple of weeks and doesn't appear to be near a full recovery. The 24-year-old has returned to practice multiple times since suffering the injury, but he's apparently reaggravated it on several occasions.

  • Jets' Lorenzo Mauldin: Sidelined with back issue

    Mauldin didn't practice on Thursday due to a back injury, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    Mauldin returned from a back injury Monday and it appears as though the issue has continued to linger. He's been struggling with the ailment intermittently and missed the team's first preseason game. He'll look to let the injury fully heal so as to reduce the chances of it resurfacing during the regular season.

  • Jets' Lorenzo Mauldin: Returns to practice Thursday

    Mauldin (back) returned to practice Thursday, Connor Hughes of The Star-Ledger reports.

  • Jets' Lorenzo Mauldin: Misses second straight practice

    Mauldin (back) sat out of practice for the second consecutive day, Darryl Slater of The Star-Ledger reports.

    Mauldin received 34 percent of defensive snaps last season, and as long as he can be healthy by Week 1, the same should be expected. Former defensive end Sheldon Richardson, who transitioned to outside linebacker, and Jordan Jenkins are likely to slot in front of Mauldin.

  • Jets' Lorenzo Mauldin: Arrested Wednesday

    Mauldin was arrested on Wednesday and charged with a misdemeanor assault stemming from a nightclub altercation in April, Rich Cimini of reports.

    Mauldin turned himself in Wednesday morning after allegedly attacking a man in a nightclub almost two months ago. "We have been monitoring the developments and this matter is under review of personal conduct policy," NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said. Mauldin has been competing for a starting linebacker role throughout minicamp.

  • Jets' Lorenzo Mauldin: Has partially torn ankle ligament

    Mauldin indicated Monday that he was dealing with a partially torn ankle ligament, but won't require surgery, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    Mauldin missed the Jets' final five games of the season with the ankle injury, but it looks like he should be fully recovered by the time training camp rolls around in the fall. The linebacker finished 2016 with 16 tackles, 2.5 sacks and an interception in 11 games.
