Injury Report

jets_150Out:

  • Eric Decker, WR (shoulder, did not participate in Fri. practice)
  • Bryce Petty, QB (shoulder, did not participate in Fri. practice)
  • Jalin Marshall, WR (shoulder, did not participate in Fri. practice)

Questionable:

  • Ryan Clady, LT (shoulder, limited participation in Fri. practice)
  • Bruce Carter, LB (ankle, limited participation in Fri. practice)

When it revealed that rookie return man and No. 4 option on offense Jalin Marshall would miss a few weeks with a torn shoulder labrum, there was very little sweat thanks to the depth of the receiving group. Now that Eric Decker has already been ruled out for Sunday’s game, sweat is dripping.

Rookie Robbie Anderson will be elevated to the No. 3 spot while Charone Peake, most likely, the No. 4. Suddenly, that deep group of weapons Fitzpatrick had to throw to isn’t looking so hot.

Out:

  • Thomas Rawls, RB (fibula, did not participate in Fri. practice)

Questionable:

  • Jimmy Graham, TE (knee/back, full participation in Fri. practice)
  • Nick Vannett, TE (ankle, full participation in Fri. practice)
  • Mike Morgan, LB (hip, limited participation in Fri. practice)
  • Jarran Reed, DT (hip, did not participate in Fri. practice)
  • C.J. Prosise, RB (wrist, full participation in Fri. practice)

Other than starting running back Thomas Rawls and, of course, the sprained knee Russell Wilson is dealing with, the Seattle Seahawks are coming in relatively healthy.
