Decker reportedly has an MCL sprain. But the Denver Post says it is much worse, as they are reporting that Decker has a serious ACL injury.

Head Coach John Fox would only go as far as to say it was a “significant” injury. Decker will have an MRI of the injury on Monday to get the official diagnosis.

Tebow used to favor Decker as his favorite receiver to begin the season. However, Demaryius Thomas has been the big play guy late in the regular season and the Wild Card game against the Steelers.

During the regular season, Decker appeared in 16 games. He made 13 starts.

In the win against the Steelers, Decker had one carry for nine yards. He did not have a reception.
