The Jets left Kansas City with battered egos and bruised shoulders.

Three separate Jets suffered shoulder injuries in their 24-3 loss to the Chiefs, most notably wide receiver Eric Decker. Decker did not practice Wednesday and will likely get an MRI on his shoulder, coach Todd Bowles told reporters. Decker aggravated the injury on Sunday after practicing in a limited fashion last week.

Defensive lineman Lawrence Thomas and return specialist Jalin Marshall -- who fumbled away seven points on Sunday -- both suffered torn labrums and will miss "a couple weeks."

But that's not all. Bowles added that veteran cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered an ankle injury Wednesday and did not practice. The coach did clarify that there's "not much" concern, but any injury involving the aging Revis needs to be discussed and dissected at this point in his career.

Injuries to veterans, major or minor, are the last thing this 1-2 Jets team needs as it heads into a brutal three-game gauntlet against the Seahawks, Steelers and Cardinals.
