Jets fans continued to suffer long after Gang Green nearly gave up a devastating loss thanks to late-game defensive deficiency and a fumble. But the post-game pain only affected some begrudging devotees.

Five Jets fans were injured in an escalator mishap at New Jersey Transit's Secaucus Junction train station. All escalators but one are now back in service.

NJ Transit spokesman Dan Stessel says they were going up when the 25-foot long escalator came to a sudden stop Sunday.

Stessel says a man and a woman were taken to Jersey City Medical Center with head injuries. Two men sustained knee injuries and a woman injured her ribs.

Stessel says none of the injuries appeared life-threatening.

All 31 escalators at the station were turned off until they could be inspected.

All but the one where the accident happened were back in service Monday.

The cause of the incident remains under investigation.
