News: Decker (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Saturday and is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Bears, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Although Decker did not practice Friday, he was seen running and cutting on the injured hamstring during the portion of practice open to the media. His ability to log a limited practice Saturday would seem to suggest his chances of playing against Chicago are at least slightly better than 50-50, especially after coach Rex Ryan said Decker didn't necessarily need to practice in order to play, but Mehta went on to say Decker will likely end up being a true game-time call.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker (hamstring) missed practice again Friday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. Impact: The report adds that Decker was spotted running and cutting during the media-access portion of Friday's practice, with coach Rex Ryan noting that the wideout doesn't necessarily have to practice in order to play in Monday night's game against the Bears. "He's a veteran," Ryan said of Decker. "You'd like your guys to practice, there's no doubt. But if a guy can't I'm not gonna say he absolutely can't play. I'm not gonna back myself into that corner." More on Decker's status after Saturday's practice, but the Jets' Monday night kickoff makes rolling with Decker this week a tricky option for fantasy owners if he continues to remain iffy in advance of that contest.(RotoWire, )

News: At this stage, Decker (hamstring) indicated that he's unsure if he will be available for Monday's game against the Bears, the Daily News reports. Impact: For his part, coach Rex Ryan said that he is hopeful that Decker will be able to suit up Monday, but what the wideout does (or doesn't do) at practice in the coming days will be telling on that front. Meanwhile, the reports notes that Decker did not undergo an MRI on his hamstring, which the wideout says isn't torn. "I aggravated it," said Decker, who dealt with a hamstring issue in training camp. "It's not a lingering effect, but obviously I did it in training camp and it didn't fully go away."(RotoWire, )

News: Decker is listed as questionable for the New York Jets' game Monday night against the Chicago Bears. Impact: Decker, dealing with tightness in his right hamstring, was limited in practice Saturday after sitting out the previous three days. The Jets' leading receiver with nine catches for 137 yards and a touchdown will likely be a game-time decision for the game at MetLife Stadium. (STATS, 5:36pm)

News: Decker (hamstring) did not participate in the media access portion of Wednesday's practice, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

News: Rex Ryan didn't have much to say Monday concerning Decker's Week 3 status, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. "We don't know," Ryan said of Decker's chances of playing next Monday versus Chicago. "We'll see. Hopefully he'll be ready to roll." Impact: Decker gets an extra day of prep time before Monday's Week 3 capper, which is a gift and a curse for owners. On the plus side, we appreciate a longer wait to get healthy, but owners would need a last-second option if Decker turned into a game-day scratch.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker (hamstring) aggravated a previous right hamstring ailment Sunday, and his status for Week 3 against the Bears is uncertain, the Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Decker exited during the third quarter of Sunday's loss to the Packers after a prior right hamstring issue resurfaced. The Jets' wideout didn't return to the game but still finished with a team-leading four receptions (on seven targets) for 63 yards and a touchdown. Considering Decker's same hamstring forced him to miss time during the preseason, his progress this week should be crucial in determining his availability to play the Bears. Fortunately, that game isn't until next Monday night, affording Decker's hamstring an extra day of treatment but also creating a tricky situation for his owners. As such, expect his status and practice involvement to be updated throughout the week.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker (hamstring) is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Packers, Green Bay's official twitter account reports. Impact: Decker had a decent day before exiting in the third quarter, but it looks like he'll finish with a 4-63-1 receiving line on seven targets. His absence should lead to extra opportunities for Greg Salas and David Nelson.(RotoWire, )

News: Decker caught five passes for 74 yards in Sunday's victory over Oakland. Impact: A solid showing from just six targets - and the Jets attempted a mere 29 passes on the day. A heavier workload might be in line for Week 2's matchup against Green Bay.(RotoWire, )
