    Jets' Decker limited; Harris, Nelson, Walls sit (Dennis Waszak) Associated Press October 9, 2014

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker was limited at practice because of a hamstring injury that kept him out of the team's game last Sunday at San Diego.

    Decker, who has been dealing with the injury since Week 2, hopes to play Sunday against Denver — the team with which he spent his first four NFL seasons before signing with the Jets as a free agent in the offseason.

    Linebacker David Harris sat out practice Wednesday with a shoulder injury, but coach Rex Ryan feels good about his prospects of playing.

    Wide receiver David Nelson (ankle), cornerback Darrin Walls (knee) and safety Josh Bush (quadriceps) also did not practice. Center Nick Mangold (shoulder), right guard Willie Colon (knee) and cornerback Dee Milliner (quadriceps) were limited.

    After sorry stretch, Jets' Smith aims to be better (Dennis Waszak) Associated Press October 9, 2014

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Geno Smith has done lots of apologizing lately.

    For cursing at a fan. For poor performances. For missing a team meeting.

    The New York Jets quarterback is in a rut, on and off the field. But he's getting another chance to hold on to his starting job, and knows that if he doesn't improve quickly, he could end up back on the sideline — maybe for good.

    "Obviously, I'm disappointed in some of the uncharacteristic things that I have done," Smith said after practice Wednesday. "But I have apologized for those things, and now it's about not letting those things occur again, and just remaining focused on football — staying grounded and remaining focused on football."

    Last week, Smith was fined $12,000 by the NFL for shouting an expletive at a heckler after the Jets' 24-17 loss to the Detroit Lions at home. He talked about making progress on the field, playing at a higher level. But then came the news that he missed a meeting — along with a teammate — the night before the Jets' 31-0 drubbing at the hands of the San Diego Chargers.

    Smith was present for the rest of the meetings, missing only what was a 10-minute session. The quarterback said he told his teammates he was sorry, and coach Rex Ryan didn't consider benching him for the start of the game — saying the discipline would be taken care of in-house.

    "Was this thing just an aberration?" Ryan said. "I believe it was."

    Some fans and media insisted it was a display of immaturity by Smith, not exactly becoming of a team leader. There were also criticisms of Ryan, saying he was perhaps too lenient by letting him start at San Diego.

    "I learned that all of my actions definitely are being watched and I know that already, but I just have to remain the guy that I have always been," Smith said. "Just continue to be humble. Don't let outside distractions affect me, and they usually don't. Unfortunately, I made a mistake and all I can do is rebound from it."

    Smith was eventually benched last Sunday in favor of Michael Vick, but that was only because the Jets' offense was struggling in a big way — again. Immediately after the game, Ryan declared that Smith would start Sunday against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

    Publicly, Ryan remains steadfast in his support of Smith, despite
