The Jets practiced without both of their top wide receivers on Wednesday, but one of them was back on the field for Thursday’s session.

Eric Decker got in a limited practice after sitting out on Wednesday because of a shoulder injury. He said earlier in the week that he expects to be on the field against the Chiefs on Sunday, but coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday it “remains to be seen” and indicated that it could be a game-time decision.

Bowles said the same about Marshall, who has now missed each of the team’s practices this week after hurting his knee during last Thursday’s victory over the Bills. Marshall has said that he’ll take all the time allowed before the Jets have to declare inactives if needed.

Linebacker Erin Henderson, guard James Carpenter and quarterback Bryce Petty were also out of practice for the Jets, who will be in Kansas City this weekend.

    really putting a damper on my lineup in regards to Marshall…and they play the night game so its either roll the dice w/ him or sit him and watch him play and blow up for 20 plus points…

    I like our chances this week, and I think BM plays. If not enunwa, baby marshall and robbie anderson will have to step up. And Forte and Powell…KC’s having trouble stopping the run as I understand it.

    I’ll bet Marshall plays, he was obviously healthy enough to play last week’s game after the injury, and is a good enough player who doesn’t really need lots of practice.
