Jets Place WR Eric Decker on Injured Reserve


The Jets announced today that they have placed WR Eric Decker on injured reserve.

Decker, who was inactive the past two games, suffered a partially torn rotator cuff early this season. He played in the team's first three games, hauling in nine passes for 194 yards with 2 TDs. Decker extended his consecutive home game streak with a touchdown to eight games in a Week 1 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, hauling in a 15-yard scoring pass from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Decker had six receptions in a Week 2 win at Buffalo, totaling 126 yards with a TD.

In 15 games last season, the 6'3", 214-pound Decker totaled 80 receptions for 1,027 yards with 12 TDs. It was Decker's third pro season of 80 catches and 1,000 receiving yards. He also set the Jets' single-season red zone mark with 10 scoring grabs inside the 20.

The Jets originally signed Decker to a free agent deal in the spring of 2014. He has played 33 games for the Green & White, amassing 163 receptions for 2,183 yards while averaging 13.4 yards a catch in addition to 19 TDs. Decker, in his seventh season from Minnesota, has 385 career receptions for 5,253 yards and 52 TDs.
