Bears WRs Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) as well as Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) are all listed as questionable for Monday night. Marshall and Jeffery were both game-time decisions in Week 2 and both played on Sunday night. Marshall got his first practice of this week in on Saturday and was limited. Jeffery was a limited participant in practice all week. Decker didn't practice until Saturday either and was also limited. The two Bears wideouts are expected to play while Decker is considered a game-time decision.
Erik Frenz of Boston.com wrote Saturday that "Rob Gronkowski probably will not play 100 percent of the snaps this week. ... Patriots may continue to play it safe with [his] health." Frenz is hinting that the Patriots know what they have in Gronk and can continue to utilize him as a red-zone threat.
New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker appears optimistic about his ability to play Monday night against the Bears despite a hamstring injury. "Well, it's one day, my mentality is to take it one day at a time," Decker said. "I would love to play, so I am just making sure that we take the right steps. Don't do too much, but do enough to feel it out and make a decision once that day rolls around."
Here is Knowshon Moreno's line from Sunday against the Bills: one carry, 4 yards, one dislocated left elbow.
Moreno, who rushed for more than 130 yards in Week 1, will now miss at least a month because of that injury. Lamar Miller also didn't make it through the game unscathed as he injured an ankle in the fourth quarter. With the Dolphins' backfield in disarray, the team re-signed Daniel Thomas on Monday, a back who was included among Miami's final cuts in August.
