Jets wide receiver Eric Decker has suffered a partially torn rotator cuff, as Daniel Popper of the Daily News writes. Decker is officially out for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks, according to coach Todd Bowles.
Decker will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis and it’s not yet known whether he will undergo surgery. If Decker goes under the knife, it stands to reason that he would be a candidate for IR, though the new rules would allow for him to return in two months. After the Jets’ offense fizzled against the Chiefs on Sunday, they’re certainly hoping that they won’t be without Decker for an extended period of time.
Decker, 29, enjoyed his best season as a Jet last year, catching 80 passes for 1,027 yards and 12 touchdowns. Through three games this year, Decker has nine receptions for 194 yards and two scores.
