It’s only preseason, but a few NFL team employees already are in midseason form.
The New York Jets visited the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Thursday for the teams’ first preseason game of 2015, and the Lions team DJ had a little fun as teams were introduced.

Smith, of course, had his jaw broken by ex-teammate IK Enemkpali earlier this week — reportedly over a $600 debt Enemkpali thought he was owed. Enemkpali was signed shortly after by former Jets coach Rex Ryan, who now coaches the AFC East rival Buffalo Bills.
The Jets lost Thursday’s game to Detroit 23-3. New York quarterbacks Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bryce Petty combined to complete 12 of 21 passes for just 56 yards.
