We will have the full injury report coming from Mike Nash later on, but here is some big, yet unfortunate news.
Despite making it through the game last Sunday, Eric Decker has not practiced over the last two days. As such, Rex Ryan announced that Decker will be a game-time decision on Sunday afternoon for the game against the Chargers. As we know, Decker has been unfortunately bothered by a hamstring injury, that limited his play against the Bears, and has affected his practice time.

If he cannot go, the Jets wide receiving group will be scarce. David Nelson has not practiced this week after injuring his ankle against the Lions last week. If he can’t go, as well as Eric Decker, that group will be very reminiscent of the early 2013 group, with Jeremy Kerley and not much else to speak of.
We have been there before, and we all saw how that turned out. Let’s hope that Mr. Decker is healthy enough to go on Sunday.
UPDATE: 3:29 pm. David Nelson practiced on a limited basis today and will be a game-time decision as well.
