UPDATE: It sounds like there is some good news on the Decker injury front.
Eric Decker says he was told that his knee injury is "not surgical".., relatively good news. MRI tomorrow— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) September 22, 2015
Decker: "I'm going to be smart about it. I'm not going to rush myself back." He thinks it was a PCL injury. #nyj— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) September 22, 2015
So the manual manipulation test on his knee didn't indicate any sort of tear that would require surgery— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) September 22, 2015
One of the few pieces of bad news coming from Monday's win over the Indianapolis Colts was Eric Decker leaving the game with a knee injury. Decker put up 8 catches for 97 yards and a touchdown in New York's 20-7 victory. Todd Bowles said Decker will get an MRI on the knee tomorrow.

Hopefully Decker is all right. So far this season, it seems like the attention Brandon Marshall has drawn has benefited Decker.
This is a big deal. The Jets need Decker. This passing game is not shaping up as a balanced one. It is a passing game that is probably going to have to lean heavily on its two best targets to have success. Decker is certainly one of them.
Anyway, I don't want to bring too much sorrow into a happy night. Think good thoughts.
