Eric Decker Injury Update: Denver Broncos WR To Miss Patriots Game

While Demaryius Thomas and Tim Tebow get ready to face old coach Josh McDaniels and the New England Patriots on Saturday, another member of McDaniel's 2012 NFL Draft class won't be able to participate. Wide receiver Eric Decker will be sidelined due to a strained MCL, reports the Denver Post.

Decker received the injury when he attempted to make a catch during the second quarter. However, James Harrison delivered a big but legal hit on Decker, who appeared to have made the catch. Replay overturned the call.

For now, the Broncos have Demaryius Thomas, Eddie Royal and Matthew Willis as the only wide receivers on the roster. Will we have a roster move announced early in the week or will the team tough it out until they learn how long Decker is out for?
