Sammy Watkins dealing with hip injury

The Bills took care of the Browns on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium to improve to 7-5 and keep their playoff hopes alive heading into the final month of the regular season.

The victory didn’t come without a cost, however. They saw defensive tackle Marcell Dareus miss time during the game with a hip injury and the team revealed Monday that wide receiver Sammy Watkins also hurt his hip during the contest.

Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports that coach Doug Marrone said that he had “no idea” whether Watkins would miss any practice time this week. Wednesday will bring the first update on that front, but Watkins didn’t miss any snaps on offense during Sunday’s victory and that would seem to bode well for his status.

Watkins has been bothered by various aches and pains as a rookie and hasn’t been too productive of late, 13 catches for 105 yards in the last four games, although it has hardly been a robust time for anyone involved in the Buffalo passing game.
