Jets WR Eric Decker active for clash with Dolphins

Eric Decker will play in London.

The New York Jets' wide receiver is active and will play Sunday versus the Miami Dolphins. Decker missed last week's loss with a knee injury suffered in Week 2.

Every game, all season

Decker's presence on the field is huge for Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. With Brandon Marshall attracting coverage, Decker is able to take advantage of team's No. 2 cornerback. He feasted on the coverage matchups before the injury.

Against a Dolphins defense that was shredded last week by the Buffalo Bills, Decker should have a good day when Brent Grimes' attention is on Marshall.

Jets running back Chris Ivory is active and will play as well. 

For the Dolphins, tackle Branden Albert will miss the contest as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury. Ryan Tannehill could be under siege without his best blocker against Todd Bowles' blitzing defense.

Dolphins Inactives: RB Raheem Mostert; CB Tony Lippett; T Branden Albert; G Billy Turner;TE Dion Sims; WR Matt Hazel; DT A.J. Francis

Jets Inactives: WR Chris Owusu; CB Darrin Walls; LB Jamari Lattimore; OL Jarvis Harrison; G Willie Colon; T Ben Ijalana; TE Jeff Cumberland
