Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) missing practice, 'not serious'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Wide receiver Eric Decker, the New York Jets' prized free agent, missed most of practice Friday with a hamstring injury. It's not serious, according to Rex Ryan.

"It's a little bit of a hamstring," Ryan said. "It's not like he pulled a hamstring. We took care of him."

Decker is expected to play Saturday night in the annual Green & White scrimmage. He apparently got hurt Thursday, as he was seen in the trainer's area at the start of Friday's practice. He didn't participate in any team drills.

Fantasy Impact: 

There’s no doubt that Decker is going to see a downgrade at QB going from Peyton Manning to a combination of Geno Smith and Michael Vick. But as the Jets’ clear WR1, he should see enough targets to become a fantasy starter even if his per target production is likely to drop. He looked great in camp prior to the injury.
