Tuesday September 22nd, 2015

Jets receiver Eric Decker will have an MRI on his knee Tuesday, head coach Todd Bowles told reporters after Monday night’s 20–7 win over the Colts

Decker left the game in the fourth quarter after catching eight passes for 97 yards and a touchdown. He told reporters afterwards that his knee likely will not require surgery.

Decker, 28, is in his second season with the Jets. He caught 74 passes for 962 yards and five touchdowns last season, 36 more receptions and 553 more yards than any other Jets receiver. 

Decker caught a touchdown in the first quarter of Monday’s game on a slant route over the middle. 

The Jets added Brandon Marshall in an off-season trade to start opposite Decker.
