New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker was pulled from practice on Thursday due to lingering concerns about his hamstring.
Decker has been dealing with a hamstring injury since training camp. He left the Jets' Week 2 game against the Green Bay Packers due to the injury.
Head coach Rex Ryan said this week that the receiver was feeling better on Monday than at the same point the previous week.
Decker said he wants to keep trying to play even though shutting himself down to allow his hamstring to heal might be a smarter option.
Decker has 14 receptions for 204 yards and two touchdowns this season. He was signed by New York in March after four seasons with the Denver Broncos. Last season he had 87 receptions for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns.
