Jets Injury Report: Eric Decker, Dee Milliner, Nick Mangold

By on 9/27/2014 10:30:00 PM

Earlier in the week it appeared as though the New York Jets would be heading into tomorrow afternoon’s game against the visiting Detroit Lions with an offense riddled with injuries: 

The Jets’ final injury report gives fans a reason to smile heading into tomorrow’s game. With the exception of only CB Dee Milliner (Quadriceps), it looks like the rest of the Jets’ team will be ready come tip-off against the Lions. 

When it comes to the team’s offence, five of the six players have been listed as probable for Sunday. This must be a relief to coach Ryan as four of those six players returning are first stringers and there’s no doubt their absence would be sorely missed against the Lions. 

The lone player listed as questionable on the report was WR Eric Decker (Hamstring). Decker was only able to participate in light practice on Friday, so it’s a good thing that fellow WR David Nelson (Illness) was able to participate in his first full practice Friday. 

RB Chris Johnson (Ankle) and G Willie Colon (Calf) have both been participating in team practices since Wednesday. Johnson, or CJ2K as he is well-known, was former first round pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2008. Colon on the other hand was a fourth overall pick, but was a member of Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers back in 2008, one of the few accolades that has alluded CJ2K to this point in this career. 

As for the Jets’ Centers, starter Nick Mangold (Shoulder) and backup Dalton Freeman (Knee) have been listed as probable. Both players were limited early in the week but come Friday were able to participate in a full practice. 

When it comes to the Jets’ defense, Defensive End Muhammad Wilkerson (Knee) has been listed as probable against the Lions. The 24-year-old has played his entire career for New York, selected 30th in the 2011 NFL Draft. 

Tomorrow’s game is schedule to begin for 1:00 PM EST at the MetLife Stadium.
