Following a recovery time of six months, and after he is off crutches, doctors will perform the necessary surgery to repair the torn rotator cuff in Decker’s shoulder.
The recovery time for that operation will be eight months.
Prior to his injury, Decker had 194 yards receiving and a pair of touchdowns, and had looked well on his way to serving as the team’s valuable No. 2 option in the passing game.
