Sammy Watkins: “I might sit out two or three days” of camp

According to coach Rex Ryan, the Bills won the offseason even with top wide receiver Sammy Watkins unavailable for most offseason work after having surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot.

Watkins said he agrees with his coach and called this the “best offseason I’ve been a part of” despite the injury keeping him off the field. Watkins said early this month that he didn’t have a timetable for his return, but it seems he’s developed a better sense of when he’ll resume football activities.

“For training camp, I think I’ll definitely be available,” Watkins said, via TSN.ca. “I might sit out two or three days. It’s all about how I feel within those days. The goal is to come back and be prepared for training camp.”

Watkins has dealt with injuries throughout his time with the Bills and said he’ll be spending the bulk of time until camp in Buffalo rehabbing as part of an effort to do “everything I need to do to keep myself on the field.” The Bills offense is more potent when Watkins is running at full strength and winning during the actual season will be much likelier if he can find a way to put the injury bug to rest.

  1. Seems like a good kid with some bad luck. Hope he has a great year, just not in week 1. 🙂

    He’s missed a whopping two games in his career, but be sure to keep that bogus narrative going

  3. I thought that the blogger saying Sammy Watkins had only missed two games in his pro football career wasn’t right.
    I checked two sources, ESPN and NFL.com and Watkins played in 13 games for the Bills in 2015. So last year he missed 3 games.

    Really? He misses 2 games and you claim he is made of glass? Rumors ruin reputations… you don’t want to be known as the rumor troll do you?

  5. Watkins said he agrees with his coach and called this the “best offseason I’ve been a part of” despite the injury keeping him off the field.

    – Sammy, this is your 2nd offseason…it is either your best or your worst, not much to go on there…

  6. Bills could also have stayed put and taken Odell Beckham instead. Would have saved them their #1 pick the following year.

    Watkins is a talent. But he will be compared to ODB since they were in the same draft class.

    Really? Because of all the WRs picked in the first 3 rounds of his draft class, he’s the one that has missed the least amount of games.

  8. I’ll bet it’s 2-3 weeks….having followed the NFL for 18 years. There has been no player announcing they’re gonna miss 2-3 days of camp and it comes true. If you buy it…please please bet me. I’ll give you 5 days on a 1-1 bet.

    Yup and saved a 1st round pick. Mack was right in their backyard too.

    Wide right, you lose again.

  10. If Watkins had a Manning tossing him balls all season, he would be very comparable to OBJ, they are both game changers.

    Sammy Watkins shouldnt even be in the same conversation with OBJ. Watkins isn’t a top tier WR in the nfl.

    Bills had the 9th pick to start with and Mack went at 5, so exactly how could they have drafted him and saved a 1st round pick? Sorry Joetoronto, you are wide right and will lose every time.
