Report: Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) likely to play vs. Jets

Thursday September 15th, 2016

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins is likely to play on Thursday night against the Jets, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Watkins reported soreness in his left foot, which he underwent surgery on earlier in the summer.

“I'm doing fine. I'll be fine,” Watkins said earlier in the week. “Just sore after the game. That's expected. Getting prepared for next week.”

The Bills are coming off a 13–7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Week 1. Watkins caught four passes to lead the team with 43 yards.

Watkins missed three games in 2015 due to the injury.
