New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker will play Monday night against the Chicago Bears after testing his hamstring, reports ESPN

Decker was a game-time decision after being listed as questionable for the game with a hamstring injury. He missed three days of practice last week but did practice in a limited role on Saturday.

The 27-year-old injured his hamstring in the third quarter of the Jets' 31-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday. He returned for one play before leaving the game for good.

The receiver also dealt with the injury during training camp.

On Wednesday, head coach Rex Ryan said he was "confident" that Decker would play against the Bears.

In two games this season, Decker has caught nine passes for 137 yards and a touchdown.
