Jets WR Eric Decker to undergo season-ending surgery on rotator cuff
The New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff and has been placed on injured reserve, the team announced on Wednesday.
Decker missed the past two games for the Jets. He played in three games on the year and caught nine passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns.
The Jets were counting on him to follow up a solid 2015 campaign in which he caught 80 receptions for 1,027 yards and 12 touchdowns.
The Jets' top two receivers remain Brandon Marshall and Quincy Enunwa. Rookie Robby Anderson could see more time as a third option for quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
New York signed cornerback Nick Marshall off the Jaguars' practice squad to fill Decker's roster spot.
