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.
