Jets coach Rex Ryan was vague Monday when asked if Eric Decker (hamstring) would play in Week 3.

The Jets face the Bears in their next game, Week 3 on Monday Night Football. "We don't know," said Ryan. "We'll see. Hopefully he'll be ready to roll on Monday." The long week helps, but our hope is the Jets don't push Decker to play if he's not near 100 percent. This is an aggravation of an August injury.

Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson each played 27 snaps in Sunday's loss at Green Bay.

It's further proof that Johnson is the starter in name only. Through two weeks, CJ?K has 31 touches on 60 snaps and Ivory has 24 touches on 57 snaps. Of course, Ivory has been far more effective as he's averaging 6.30 YPC with two touchdowns on the ground vs. 3.56 YPC and zero rushing touchdowns for Johnson. Ivory will be a flex option against the Bears in Week 3.

The right hamstring Eric Decker injured during Sunday's loss at Green Bay is the same one that nagged him throughout training camp.

Recurring hamstring woes are major issues for wide receivers. Decker is headed for further testing on Monday to determine the severity, but this pull is believed to be more severe than his training camp one. If the ex-Bronco has to miss time, Geno Smith will have Jeremy Kerley and David Nelson as his top wideouts. The Jets host the Bears in Week 3.

Jace Amaro caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

Jeff Cumberland saw two targets, Tommy Bohanon got two and Zach Sudfeld got one. In other words, the Jets aren't scheming the tight-end and H-back looks to their pass-catching rookie. Amaro has two catches on five targets through two games.
Sep 14 - 8:42 PM

David Nelson caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

Nelson saw just one target even though Eric Decker (hamstring) left midway through the third quarter. Now with two targets on the season, he belongs on waiver wires in all formats.
Sep 14 - 8:40 PM

Jeremy Kerley caught three passes for 22 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

Deep in the fourth quarter, Kerley appeared to catch a bomb from Geno Smith to tie the game at 31. But the refs blew the play dead because the Jets called timeout seconds before the snap. Kerley will get a boost in Week 3 if Eric Decker (hamstring) can't go, but we know what he is -- a low-upside slot receiver being stretched badly as a primary target.
Sep 14 - 8:37 PM

Bilal Powell rushed four times for 16 yards and caught two passes for 32 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

Powell continues to handle himself well as the No. 3 man and part-time third-down back behind Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory. He'll need an injury in front to gain fantasy relevance.
Sep 14 - 8:36 PM

Chris Johnson rushed 12 times for 21 yards and caught one pass for zero yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

It only took one week for the Jets to realize Johnson's big Week 1 game was because he played the Raiders. It's obvious that rugged and powerful Chris Ivory is the better option for the Ground 'N Pound scheme Rex Ryan wants to run. Johnson gets a plus matchup against the Bears at home in Week 3, but he's going to share the carries and snaps pretty evenly with Ivory. The days of CJ as a workhorse are over.
Sep 14 - 8:32 PM

Chris Ivory rushed 13 times for 43 yards with a touchdown and caught one pass for three yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

Ivory's 3.3 yards per carry isn't impressive until you consider "starter" Chris Johnson rushed 12 times for 21 yards (1.8 YPC). Ivory continues to clearly be the Jets' best runner and the coaches know it, giving him 14 touches compared to 13 for CJ?K. As long as Ivory can stay healthy, he's going to be a weekly candidate for a touchdown and double-digit touches. He gets a dream matchup at home against the Bears in Week 3.
Sep 14 - 8:30 PM

Geno Smith completed 16-of-32 passes for 176 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

Smith added a 1-yard touchdown run on a bootleg to cap the Jets' first possession. The next time he got the ball, he dropped a perfect 29-yard dime while under heavy pressure to Eric Decker for a touchdown. Geno struggled a bit from there and suffered when Decker pulled a hamstring, but the improvement here continues to be striking. Smith looks poised in the pocket, knows when to use his legs and is flashing real arm talent. He's a fine QB2 play at home against the Bears in Week 3 as long as Decker can suit up.
Sep 14 - 8:23 PM

Eric Decker left Sunday's Week 2 game at Green Bay in the second half with a hamstring injury.

Decker was on his way to a big day with four catches for 63 yards and one touchdown. Instead, he'll end up watching some of the third quarter and all of the fourth quarter from the sidelines. Geno Smith is trying to mount a comeback with Jeremy Kerley and David Nelson as his top-two wideouts.
Sep 14 - 7:15 PM

Jets RE Muhammad Wilkerson was ejected from Sunday's Week 2 game at Green Bay for throwing punches.

Wilkerson, one of the game's true rising stars along the defensive line, was part of a large scuffle following a Packers' two-point conversion. He threw a few punches (although they appeared to be open-handed) and got the boot.
Sep 14 - 6:48 PM

Jets CB Dee Milliner (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 2 game at Green Bay.

Milliner's return provides a talent injection to the Jets' rancid secondary, although it's unclear how much he'll play. There are no surprises in the inactives: DT TJ Barnes, DB Josh Bush, LB Ikemefuna Enemkpali, LB AJ Edds, T Ben Ijalana, R Walter Powell and G Dakota Dozier.
Sep 14 - 3:09 PM

Coach Rex Ryan expects CB Dee Milliner to play against the Packers Week 2, but hinted the 2013 first-round pick could be limited.

"I think he’ll play, but we’ll see how much," Ryan said. Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls will start for the Jets, with Milliner coming off the bench. Milliner has been out since August 10 with a high-ankle sprain.
Sep 13 - 11:30 AM

Jets re-signed CB Ellis Lankster.

Lankster was cut loose by the Jets early last week. With CB Leon McFadden getting the boot, special teamer Lankster is back to help cover kicks.
