FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets are hoping to have Eric Decker back in the lineup in London on Sunday.

The star wide receiver participated in some team drills Thursday for the first time since spraining his left knee nearly two weeks ago.

Decker was hurt against Indianapolis in Week 2 and sat out last Sunday against Philadelphia. His status remained uncertain for the Jets’ game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday in London.

“I’m up in the air right now,” coach Todd Bowles said. “I’ve got to see him do a little more, but he was limited today so that was encouraging.”

Decker will test out the knee again in practice on Friday, when the Jets take the field in London. The team will then file its final injury report and should have a better sense of Decker’s availability.

Cornerback Darrelle Revis was limited for the second straight day with a sore hamstring. Revis said Wednesday he would be fine to play, and Bowles also was confident he would have him in the secondary.

Running back Chris Ivory was a full participant after being limited with a strained quadriceps that kept him on the sideline against the Eagles, although he was active for the game. A return by Ivory to the backfield would be a big boost to the Jets’ offense, which managed just 47 yards rushing last Sunday.

“When he’s healthy, he gives us a spark, hopefully,” Bowles said. “We’ve just got to open holes regardless of who is back there.”

Tight end Jeff Cumberland (concussion) and right guard Willie Colon (sprained knee) are out and did not travel with the team. Linebacker Trevor Reilly (finger infection) is unlikely to play, but made the trip to London.

Cornerback Darrin Walls (hamstring) didn’t practice, and safety Jaiquawn Jarrett (knee) was limited. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie (hip) and linebacker Quinton Coples (sprained elbow) were full participants after being limited Wednesday.
