FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker and cornerback Dee Milliner have sat out practice with injuries, and their status is uncertain for the game against the Chicago Bears on Monday night.
Decker tweaked his right hamstring during the Jets' 31-24 loss at Green Bay, aggravating an injury he dealt with during training camp. Decker said Wednesday that he didn't need to go for an MRI exam and there is no tear in the hamstring.
Milliner, the team's top cornerback, made his season debut against the Packers after dealing with a high ankle sprain for most of training camp. His left ankle stiffened up on him late in the game Sunday, and he removed himself after Jordy Nelson's 80-yard touchdown catch late in the third quarter.
