Jets wide receiver Eric Decker on Tuesday underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder. The surgery was expected.

This was the second of two recent surgeries for Decker, who had hip surgery Oct. 18. The shoulder injury resulted in Decker being placed on season-ending injured reserve after he played in just three games this season.

When the Jets announced Decker's hip surgery, right after it happened, they said the recovery time would be six months, and that Decker would have shoulder surgery once he was off crutches. The Jets said the shoulder surgery's recovery time would be eight months.

The recovery times will now run concurrently. An eight-month recovery period from the shoulder surgery would run until mid-July, right before training camp begins.

Fantasy Impact:

Jets coach Todd Bowles has said he's not sure if Decker will be ready for the start of the 2017 season, but Decker has insisted he will not miss any game action.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said recently it'll be "close" in terms of whether wide receiver Eric Decker will be ready for the start of the 2017 season.

During his regular appearance Friday on ESPN New York radio, Decker said he definitely will be ready by the start of 2017.

"I'm not worried about missing any time next year," Decker said. "I'll be fine by the start of next year."

Fantasy Impact:

Decker just underwent hip surgery, and still has to undergo shoulder surgery, to repair a partially torn rotator cuff. Total recovery time is about 14 months according to reports we had this week but Decker thinks he can be back in time for 2017.

Jets WR Eric Decker has hip surgery; 2017 now in jeopardy

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Injured Jets wide receiver Eric Decker had hip surgery Tuesday, the team announced, and that was just part of the surprising news regarding Decker’s status.

Decker is on the injured-reserve list due to a shoulder injury. Per the team, the hip surgery was “deemed necessary” during an evaluation for the shoulder injury last week.

Fantasy Impact:

PFT reported the Jets statement said the anticipated recovery time for the hip surgery is six months, and once Decker is off crutches he will then have shoulder surgery and have an eight-month timetable for recovery from the shoulder surgery. If Decker is out for 14 months, that means he’ll miss most or all of next season, too, the story said.
