The Chiefs will once again be without receiver Sammy Watkins.

Kansas City has downgraded Watkins to out, due to a lingering hamstring injury. Watkins had been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Panthers.

Watkins suffered the injury in Week Five against the Raiders. He has not played since then.

He has 21 catches for 222 yards and two touchdowns this year, his third with the Chiefs. Watkins ranks fifth in receptions and fourth in yardage.

The 7-1 Chiefs have won three in a row since losing to the Raiders last month.

  1. The good news is, he can use the drive-thru when he goes to the bank. Despite a mask, you can be sure he’ll be laughing all the way there.
    The Bills dodged a bullet there.

    Obviously you didn’t watch any of the afc playoff games last year or the super bowl.

  3. We have so many weapons that we have the luxury of making sure Watkins is 100% before he plays. When he is healthy he is a true 1 receiver ( along with Hill). And AR described him as “nasty tough”. Very few people who follow the Chiefs regret the Watkins signing

    I did and my point is, he plays if and when he wants and feigns injury when he doesn’t. He’s lazy and immature. He is lucky to have a ring but didn’t contribute all that much EXCEPT when it served his purpose. He has that ring because of KC not vice versa.

    Maybe that was the Sammy Watkins you saw in Buffalo, but this ain’t that guy. There is no way Andy Reid would put up with someone/anyone who isn’t contributing at a high level and giving it 100%. The roster is so stacked with offensive talent, especially at WR, that they don’t have any room for underperformers.

    Is he injury prone? Yes. Is he lazy and immature at this point in his career. No way.

  6. Watkins did kind of hide in the regular season. But he was a huge part of KC’s SB run.

    I’m sure he really misses Buffalo… Especially with that ring on his finer.
