Denver Broncos fans can breath a sigh of relief regarding the severity of wide receiver Eric Decker's knee injury. According to head coach John Fox, Decker suffered a knee sprain and is day-to-day.
Whether or not Decker can heal up quickly enough to play on Saturday night against the New England Patriots remains to be seen, but it bodes well for the Broncos should the team advance to the AFC Championship and beyond. Based on how it looked when it happened, I was concerned about the start of the 2012 season for Decker as well.
The Broncos played with just three healthy wide receivers - Demaryius Thomas, Eddie Royal and Matthew Willis - after Decker left the game.
