Bills GM ex­pects re­ceiver Watkins to re­sume prac­tic­ing

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Buf­falo Bills gen­eral man­ager Doug Wha­ley an­tic­i­pates re­ceiver Sammy Watkins will re­turn to prac­tice on Wed­nes­day for the first time since ag­gra­vat­ing an in­jury to his sur­gi­cally re­paired left foot nine weeks ago.

Wha­ley made the an­nounce­ment dur­ing his weekly show on Buf­falo’s WGR-Ra­dio.

It’s too early to de­ter­mine whether Watkins will be ac­ti­vated off in­jured re­serve, or if he can play Sun­day when Buf­falo (55) hosts Jacksonville (2-8).

The Bills’ top re­ceiv­ing threat has been lim­ited to six catches for 63 yards in play­ing the first two games this sea­son.

Watkins missed most of the off­sea­son af­ter hav­ing surgery in April, when he had two screws in­serted into his left foot to re­pair a stress frac­ture. He ag­gra­vated the in­jury when a team­mate stepped on his foot in prac­tice.
