EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall returned to the game after injuring his right ankle in the second quarter against the New York Jets.

Jets wide receiver Eric Decker left the game in the first half Monday night with a hamstring injury, and was ruled out in the fourth quarter. Decker had been uncertain to play with his balky right hamstring.

The Bears initially said Marshall, who was questionable for the game with the ankle ailing, was probable to return but then downgraded him to questionable. The star receiver headed to the locker room midway through the quarter, but was back at the start of the second half. He caught a 12-yard touchdown pass on the Bears' opening possession, but the play was negated by a penalty.

Marshall was injured during a 6-yard end-around run by wide receiver Alshon Jeffery. Marshall had yet to make a reception in the game.

Bears fullback Tony Fiammetta injured a hamstring and safety Chris Conte hurt his left shoulder — and both were ruled out for the rest of the game. Safety Ryan Mundy was questionable to return with a shoulder injury
