The Chiefs are trying to bounce back after a loss for the first time in nearly a year and they’ll reportedly have to do so without wide receiver Sammy Watkins in the lineup.

Watkins hurt his hamstring in Sunday’s 40-32 loss to the Raiders. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that he is expected to be out “possibly a couple of weeks” while he recovers.

The Chiefs also lost left guard Kelechi Osemele on Sunday. Head coach Andy Reid said on Sunday that Osemele tore tendons in both knees during the loss.

Watkins had two catches for 24 yards and a touchdown. He has 21 catches for 222 yards and two touchdowns over the entire season.

  1. This is not news. Sammy Watkins is always hurt. 1 16 game season in his career.

  2. Yeah, umm, it will be more than a couple of weeks. Another Brett Veach wildly overpaid player.

    Very poor ROI whether he was in Buff, LA or now.

  3. What Watkins does for Kansas City is undeniable . He may not get a million yards a season but the offense completely changes without him.

    =========
    Watkins turns on the afterburners in the post season. ROI has paid handsomely.

    Surely you remember him pancaking Gilmore and this is the source of your contempt.
