WR Sammy Watkins, RB Fred Jackson active for Bills

Sunday November 9th, 2014

Both wide receiver Sammy Watkins and running back Fred Jackson are active for the Buffalo Bills against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, the Bills announced

Watkins and Jackson were questionable for the game due to groin injuries. 

Watkins, a rookie, did not participate in practice on Thursday or Friday after leaving Wednesday's practice with the injury. He later said he's been bothered by it for two weeks, and said Friday that he was "clueless" about his status against the Chiefs.

Buffalo (5-3) hosts Kansas City (5-3) at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
