Sammy Watkins: Certain things are full speed, certain things aren’t

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins said recently that everything is right where it needs to be in regard to his recovery from left foot surgery, although that doesn’t mean that he feels 100 percent comfortable doing everything on the football field.

Watkins said that he feels like his foot is “healed” and that he’s doing plenty of things at full speed during his workouts with the team’s strength and conditioning staff. He’s taking his time with the rest in order to avoid a setback that could put his availability for the start of the season into question.

“As far as sprinting and stuff I’m moving and doing that 100 percent,” Watkins said, via the team’s website. “Gassers, 100s, everything in the workout room. Any explosiveness I’m doing that. I’m doing the cuts, but certain things are full speed and certain things aren’t.”

Cutting off of his left foot falls into the latter category with Watkins explaining that his “foot is tense about it.” As a result, he expects a limited workload as camp unfolds so that he and the team can feel sure that he’s able to do everything all the way before the restrictions come off.

  1. Proceed carefully. Give the other WR’s some reps and find out who has it and who doesn’t. The team has some work to do if they’re going to prove that losing Chris Hogan wasn’t a mistake.

  2. Good one widerightyouloseagain ! Man you are hilarious!

    I’m shocked your mother can sleep with all the laughter that has to be emanating from her basement in the GTA.

    Go Argos!

  3. So, after going the entire season without realizing anything was wrong, and getting the surgery back in March, things are going well, but there’s no need to push it until the last few weeks before the season?


    But seriously, I agree with corkspop. Sammy is looking fine on recovery, but the #2-4 WR on the depth chart is far from settled, and Woods is likely gone after this year. Let’s see what Dez Louis and Listenbee and Boykin can do.

    Two first round picks down the toilet.

    Wide right, you lose again.
    Whether or not he was worth two first round picks instead of only one is debatable, but he obviously is not a bust in terms of his abilities. I’m leaning towards saying he was worth it because a bird in hand beats two in the bush. Usually only half of your first round picks actually pan out as high quality starters anyways.

    Even in the Watkins Vs. Beckham debate, things aren’t as clear cut as they seem. Beckham has had the benefit of a vastly superior QB situation.

  6. What a bust… Almost the same yards and TDs and that Calvin Johnson had in his first 2 seasons. And more TDs and yards than Antonio Brown had in his first 3 seasons. Not saying he’s going to be either of those 2 but your just way off….
    Sad person made a screen name to troll Bills fans and spends time posting on all Bills threads. Get a life.
