Eric Decker Injury Update: MRI Reveals MCL Sprain, Listed As 'Day-To-Day'

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker suffered what was believed to be a significant knee injury in Sunday afternoon's win agains the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime to advance in the 2012 NFL playoffs. Broncos head coach John Fox today confirmed a previous report that the injury Decker suffered was just an MCL sprain and he is currently "day-to-day" for the matchup with the New England Patriots this weekend.

Decker injured his knee in the second quarter when he attempted to make a catch over the middle and was hit by Steelers linebacker James Harrison. That pass was Decker's only target of the game. Decker led the Broncos in the regular season in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns so if he is unavailable against the Patriots, it could be a big hit to the Broncos passing game.
