Rex on Watkins: We’ll see how he progresses

The reports of renewed foot trouble for Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins were confirmed on Monday afternoon.

Bills coach Rex Ryan was asked about Watkins’ health after reports that Wakins is experiencing pain in his surgically repaired foot.

“Sammy came up after the game, talked to our trainers and he complained of his foot being sore,” Ryan said, via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com. “We’ll see how he progresses during the week.”

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported Monday that Watkins had x-rays and that there aren’t any surgical options at the moment. That report also indicated the Bills are considering whether to shut Watkins down in hopes that helps him get to 100 percent, but Ryan said the team isn’t thinking about doing that right now.

Even if they aren’t thinking about shutting Watkins down for an extended period, they have a game against the Jets this Thursday and losing Watkins isn’t going to help their chances of pumping up the offensive output after Sunday’s flop against the Ravens.

    Rex has proven that what he says and what he does are clearly two different things…..Watkins cant be counted on period….

    Another playoffs missed by the Bills. 17 years?

    Would like to pour it on the Bills for trading up, but then the Browns drafted 2 duds for their effort as well.

    When Wrecks is your head coach, the season can be over this early.

    Watkins will likely abuse Revis on one foot anyway.

    It could jusy be scar tissue tearing away. That’s what happened to Edelmann.

    How many picks did the Bill give up for this guy?

    There’s plenty of blame to go around in Buffalo, but how do you put this one on Rex? I’d honestly like to see what “Wrecks” is probably the only head coach in the NFL that has gone ~10 straight seasons without even having a B-level or better QB to work with. In Buffalo, he has teams that are already decimated by injuries by week 1.

    The Bills went into week 1 with 4-5 starters missing on defense including their best player in Dareus and still held an NFL team to 13 points. He is doing his part so far this season with the hand that was dealt.

    I’m so glad I steered clear of this guy in fantasy

    Watkins was a bad trade. The Bills gave up a lot for him, and even if he’s very good, if he misses playing time here and there because of injury, the down time is occupied by a much worse player, so the overall production declines.
    You are better off with a less talented player who stays on the field.
