FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker returned to practice on a limited basis after sitting out with a sore shoulder, while Brandon Marshall was out for a second straight day because of knee and foot ailments.
Decker says Thursday that he’ll “be ready to go” against the Chiefs on Sunday in Kansas City.
Marshall appears to be more of an uncertainty and could be a game-time decision, although he said earlier in the week that he hopes to play.
Left guard James Carpenter (calf), linebacker Erin Henderson (foot) and quarterback Bryce Petty (shoulder) also sat out. Coach Todd Bowles says three players are rotating in Carpenter’s spot: likely Wesley Johnson, Dakota Dozier and a third whom he wouldn’t identify but is likely Brent Qvale.
Linebacker David Harris (shoulder) was limited, but should be fine to play.
Running back Matt Forte was a full participant in practice a day after being limited with what Bowles said was “just a sore knee.”
The Jets have waived fullback Julian Howsare, who surprisingly beat out veteran Tommy Bohanon for a roster spot in training camp.
The move leaves the Jets without a fullback on their roster. New York did not immediately announce a corresponding move.
Howsare, a converted linebacker from Clarion University, was signed as an undrafted free agent last year. He spent most of last season on the Jets’ practice squad.
In two games this season, Howsare played three snaps on offense and was in on 30 special teams plays.
