Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins returned to practice this week, but he’s not ready for game action.

According to Mike Rodak of ESPN.com, Watkins won’t play against the Buccaneers tonight.

The Bills have been tight-lipped about his condition since he left last week’s game with a rib injury.

So while he did some individual drills this week, the idea of going against someone from another team is clearly too much of a risk at this point.

There’s been no indication he’s going to miss regular season time, so this is likely just a precautionary night off.
