And based on this note from John Fox, Decker's short-term outlook does not sound good:

In his press conference, John Fox described Eric Decker's knee injury as "significant."

That likely means that Decker will have to sit out the team's game against New England next weekend, but Decker's outlook could change once he gets a more thorough examination.

Denver plays the Patriots at 6:00 p.m. MT on Jan. 14.
