FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker and defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson were among a handful of players to sit out practice Wednesday.
Decker is dealing with tightness in his right hamstring that limited him against Chicago on Monday night. Wilkerson bruised his right knee on a play late in the Jets’ 27-19 loss.
Also sitting out were: centre Nick Mangold (shoulder), cornerback Dee Milliner (right quadriceps) and wide receiver David Nelson (illness). Right guard Willie Colon (calf) was limited, while running back Chris Johnson was a full participant despite being listed on the injury report with an ankle ailment.
Coach Rex Ryan says he feels good about the prospects of Wilkerson and Mangold playing Sunday against Detroit , and is “hopeful” about Milliner.
