The Jets considered placing wide receiver Eric Decker on injured reserve due to his partially torn rotator cuff, tweets Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. It’s unclear if New York has made a final decision on Decker’s status, but he’s expected to be week-to-week for the time being.
“Of course, there’s going to be pain. Everyone plays with pain. This is a physical game,” Decker told Daniel Popper of the New York Daily News. “So I don’t expect myself to be 100 percent at some point. It’s just getting to where it’s manageable and…I can still play the same game that I need to play.”
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.
