Eric Decker (knee) day-to-day

ESPN - [Full Article]

New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker avoided a season-ending knee injury, an MRI confirmed, but his status for Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles is uncertain.

Decker is day-to-day with a sprained knee, coach Todd Bowles said Tuesday. About 16 hours earlier, in the Jets' locker room at Lucas Oil Stadium, Decker indicated the preliminary diagnosis was a PCL injury to his left knee.

It happened early in the fourth quarter of the Jets' 20-7 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Decker said postgame tests indicated he wouldn't require surgery. Bowles refused to tip his hand on whether he expects Decker to play this week.

"I don't know; I'm going to have to see how he's doing later in the week," Bowles said. "If he's not moving well, obviously he's not going to play. But time will tell. He's got a little bit of time. I'm hopeful, but it's not out of the realm of possibility he won't play."

Fantasy Impact: 

Decker played one of his best games as a Jet, finishing with eight catches for 97 yards and a touchdown -- all in the first half. He and Brandon Marshall have formed a formidable tandem, combining for four touchdowns in the Jets' 2-0 start. Decker has a potential juicy matchup against the Eagles in Week 3. Chris Owusu and Devin Smith could see more work if Decker is indeed out.
