Although Eric Decker didn't practice Wednesday, Rex Ryan believes his top receiver will be healthy enough to play against the Lions.
"He's a durable guy and I think he's going to do whatever it takes to play," Ryan said of Decker, who was forced to leave Monday night's loss to the Bears because of tightness in his right hamstring. "I'm confident, I'm hopeful that he'll play. But again we'll see as it goes during the week."
What Rex Ryan does or doesn't believe really doesn't matter if Decker can't play a full game on his hamstring. He'd be better off resting until he's fully healthy, but the Jets are 1-2 and don't want to fall to 1-3.
