Adam Schefter reports that Jets WR Eric Decker’s partially torn rotator cuff is worrisome enough that the team is considering the possibility of placing him on injured reserve.
There has been some question as to whether Decker’s injury will require surgery. Decker admitted that it’s unlikely he will be 100 percent healthy at any point this season.
“I don’t expect myself to be 100 percent at some point,” Decker said, via the New York Daily News. “It’s just getting to where it’s manageable and I can still play the same game that I need to.”
Decker, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Broncos back in 2010. He spent four years in Denver before signing a five-year, $36.25 million contract with the Jets back in 2014. He stands to make a base salary of $6.5 million for the 2016 season.
This season, Decker has appeared in three games and caught nine passes for 194 yards receiving and two touchdowns for the Jets.
