Jets WR Eric Decker told reporters after Monday night’s win over the Colts that he doesn’t think his knee injury will require surgery, per Rich Cimini.

Doctors have told him that they seem to think it’s a PCL injury, but they’ll get further confirmation with an MRI tomorrow.

“I’m going to be smart about it,” Decker said, per Manish Mehta. “I’m not going to rush myself back.”

The good news hear is that the initial tests appear to show that his ACL is intact, which means it’s doubtful that this would be a season-ending injury.

Decker put together a solid performance against the Colts, catching eight passes for 97 yards receiving and a touchdown.

Decker, 28, is in the second year of his five-year, $36.25 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed. He make a base salary $5 million for the 2015 season.

We’ll have more updates regarding Decker’s injury and potential timetable as the news is available.
