Eric Decker will play Sunday against his former team, the Denver Broncos.

The Jets’ No. 1 receiver was listed as questionable on the official injury report, along with wideout David Nelson (ankle), linebacker David Harris (shoulder) and cornerback Darrin Walls (knee). But Decker’s nagging right hamstring injury wasn’t enough to keep him out.

He did not play in last week’s 31-0 loss in San Diego, marking the first time he’s missed a regular-season game since his rookie year with the Broncos in 2010.

Nelson, however, is inactive. But, as expected, Harris will play despite a sprained AC joint in his shoulder.

Other inactives include: T.J. Barnes, Josh Bush, Dakota Dozier, IK Enemkpali and Chris Owusu.
