FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Chris Ivory is taking a "we'll see'' approach. So is Eric Decker.

After sitting out practice Thursday, both Jets expressed uncertainty about their status for Sunday's home game against the Eagles (0-2).

"I'm good, man, still taking it day by day,'' said Ivory, who is dealing with a quadriceps injury after being limited last week with a groin injury. "I was getting over that and I irritated an area right next to it that was already bothering me.''

Ivory said the groin injury slowed him "a little bit'' in Monday night's 20-7 win over the Colts. Now it's unclear how effective he'll be against the Eagles if he does play.

Asked if he thinks he'll be able to go, Ivory said: "I'm not sure. We'll see. But things are going good right now. I'm taking it slow. I don't want to overdo it too early. We've still got a couple of days.''

Ivory did say it's possible he could suit up for the game even if he's still unable to practice Friday.

Decker, meanwhile, said he felt "a lot better'' than he did on Tuesday.

"I moved around a little bit. But again, we'll see what tomorrow brings,'' said the wide receiver, who suffered a ligament sprain in his left knee Monday night. "Haven't had any setbacks, so I'm progressing . . . Sunday's not really far away, so every day is crucial.''

Decker said he isn't in a great deal of pain and still has "pretty good flexibility and range of motion.'' But he added that he won't push himself needlessly.

"If I'm not feeling like I'm going to go out there and be productive or be able to play 60-plus snaps, I don't want to take someone's spot who can be productive on a game-day roster,'' he said.

"I want to be smart because it's a long season and I feel good about where we're at in the game plan, and if I would not be in, I feel pretty good about what we've got on offense.''

Decker said he rushed himself back for the 2014 regular season after he tweaked his right hamstring in training camp. The injury flared up again in Week 2.

"Last year, I know I pushed myself too fast,'' he said. "That's something I guess you learn from. And going through a full season and understanding that doing that really affected me about half the season. So was it worth it?''
