FLORHAM PARK, N. [url=http://www.cheapairjordan6canada.com/]Jordan 6 Canada Online[/url] .J. - Eric Decker is ready to play again. The New York Jets wide receiver hopes his ailing right hamstring allows him to. Decker sat out practice for the second straight day Thursday with tightness in his leg, but is optimistic about his chances of playing against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Im planning on getting out there, Decker said. I cant promise anything, but obviously Im leaning on the positive side that Im definitely going to be out there. Decker was limited Monday night against Chicago because of the injury, which occurred in Week 2 at Green Bay. He was a game-time decision, and could be in a similar situation this weekend. Decker had one catch for 19 yards against the Bears before pulling himself out of the game. He says he couldnt get his leg loose enough, so he and the Jets were smart to not push it. Ive got no regrets, Decker said of playing Monday night. As a competitor, its hard to be out. I thought through last week, how I felt (Monday) pregame, I could get some snaps in. I knew I wasnt going to play the whole game. I knew I could do a little bit, at least, to help. Thats all I could do was 15, 16 snaps, whatever it was. Decker, second on the team with 10 catches for 156 yards and a touchdown, acknowledged that theres some concern about waiting until hes feeling 100 per cent healthy. That was something he considered Monday night. If I sat out, would it be better today? I dont know, he said. But I do know that I wasnt going to push it past the point where Im going to make it worse. When I woke up Tuesday morning, I didnt feel worse than I felt Monday after the Green Bay game. So I knew I was smart about it. Im just going to gauge how I feel. If I can mentally get through the game and feel OK, then Im going to do that. Dealing with a soft-tissue injury is something new for Decker, who first hurt the hamstring during training camp and aggravated it against the Packers. Its kind of a pain in the butt, he said. Youve really got to kind of gauge it. Everyones different with how they recover and how bad the pull is or strain or whatever they diagnose it as. For me, its just kind of feeling it out and pushing it to the point where I know my body well enough to where its, OK, thats good pain and thats bad pain. So, just being smart about it. Meanwhile, top cornerback Dee Milliner didnt practice because of a quadriceps injury that sidelined him for the game against the Bears. Coach Rex Ryan said it probably doesnt look good for Milliner to play against the Lions. Wide receiver David Nelson was also sidelined for the second straight day because of an illness. Ryan said the team sent him home before practice. Defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson (knee), centre Nick Mangold (shoulder) and right guard Willie Colon (calf) were all limited, but are expected to play. Backup centre Dalton Freeman injured a knee during practice, which was held in the indoor facility because of storms. Ryan had no immediate update on the severity, but said Colon and rookie Dakota Dozier could snap in place of Freeman if Mangold is sidelined at any point.

The Toronto Blue Jays star won his second consecutive Hank Aaron Award as the most outstanding offensive performer in the AL on Monday after votes by fans and a panel of Hall of Famers were tallied. [url=http://www.cheapairjordan6canada.com/]http://www.cheapairjordan6canada.com/[/url] . Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter also scored for the Americans, who avoided a repeat of Finlands upset at the Four Nations Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in November. Finnish goalie Noora Raty made 58 saves in that one, but the three-time Olympian could stop just 40 of 43 U.ORLANDO, Fla. -- After enduring a rough stretch over the past two months, the Indiana Pacers will enter the playoffs on a bit of a roll. Rasual Butler and Chris Copeland each scored 19 points as the Pacers rested their key players and cruised to a 101-86 victory over the Orlando Magic in the regular-season finale for both teams. The Pacers sat three starters -- Paul George, Lance Stephenson and David West -- and played George Hill and Roy Hibbert sparingly. But they got good output from their understudies in the second half to put the game out of reach. It was the second time in two weeks Indiana won with starters on the bench. Coach Frank Vogel pulled all five starters during their victory over Milwaukee last week. "Theres always value in winning games, but anytime you have bench guys that have a chance to get extended minutes, thats really good for their rhythm and confidence," Vogel said. "Weve had pretty good health from our starters most of the season. So those bench guys havent had opportunities to get extended minutes like this. So the Milwaukee game was good and this game was good." The Eastern Conferences top seed ended the season winning three of four to shake off a nasty late-season slump. The victory was just Indianas 10th in their last 23 games. Still for a team expected to be one of the defending champion Miami Heats biggest impediments to a third consecutive NBA championship, its an encouraging boost for the post-season. The Pacers will open the playoffs against eighth-seed Atlanta. "Through all the ups and downs, were still locked into the No. 1 seed so we have to tip our hat for that," Hill said. "But its a new game now. Its playoff time -- 0-0. Its the first to 16 (wins)." The Magic trimmed what had been an 18-point, second-half deficit down to 12 in the fourth quarter before another late surge by Indiana helped secure the victory. Indiana also knocked down 11 3-pointers, and racked up 40 points in the paint. [url=http://www.cheapairjordan6canada.com/]Cheap Air Jordan 6 Canada[/url]. The Pacers didnt look short-handed as they went back and forth with the Magic in the first half, and took a six-point halftime lead. Evan Turner had 11 first-half points, including one of the Indianas six 3-pointers in the opening 24 minutes. The Magic played 11 players in the half, with nine of them scoring. Orlando struggled from the field, though, shooting just 37 per cent. Maurice Harkless led the Magic with 14 points, and ETwaun Moore added 13 for an Orlando team that ended the season losing 16 of 20 and had the fifth-worst record in franchise history. It was not a huge surprise for a franchise looking toward future. To help with the ongoing rebuilding process theyll have two lottery picks in Junes NBA draft. The plan is to add more building blocks around rookie guard Victor Oladipo, and big man Nik Vucevic. That doesnt mean there were any happy feelings Wednesday night. "Im pretty sure everybody in the locker room is tired of losing and its something that we dont want to do again next year," Harkless said. "Hopefully its something that we can fix." Now that their brief rest period is done, Hill said he feels like he and his teammates are ready for the challenge that awaits them. "Its going to be tough, but nobody gets us without having the advantage of being at home in a seven-game series," he said. "Its great without any back to backs, which is really the toughest part of the season. Its just great, now that we have some rest, our guys can prepare to go from game to game." NOTES: Orlando played without starters Jameer Nelson and Vucevic. Nelson missed his third straight game with a strained left groin, and Vucevic was out for the seventh consecutive game with a sore left Achilles....The Magic were just 7-42 this season when their opponent scored 100 or more points.
