EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Wide receivers Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions and Eric Decker of the New York Jets are both active and will play Sunday.

Decker, the Jets' No. 1 receiver, was also listed as questionable on the team's injury report while recovering from tightness in his right hamstring. He caught just one pass last Monday night before leaving against Chicago.

Cornerback Dee Milliner (quadriceps), rookie wide receiver Jalen Saunders and nose tackle Kenrick Ellis are among the Jets' inactives.

Lions safety James Ihedigbo (neck) and wide receiver Ryan Broyles are making their season debuts. Tight end Joseph Fauria (ankle) is out.
