Jets’ Decker, on IR with shoulder injury, has hip surgery

Jets wide receiver Eric Decker, already on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, has undergone surgery on his hip.

In a release issued by the team Tuesday, the Jets say the hip surgery was deemed necessary after Decker had an evaluation when he was placed on IR last week with a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder.

The team says the anticipated recovery time for Decker’s hip surgery is six months. When the wide receiver is off crutches during that period, he will have the surgery on his shoulder — with recovery time expected to be eight months.

Decker, who had nine catches for 194 yards and two touchdowns, injured his shoulder at Buffalo on Sept. 15.
