Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins had an early exit in Saturday’s game against the Steelers, leaving with a rib injury, the team announced.
The rookie, who was selected No. 4 overall, was on the end of bone-crunching hit by way of fellow rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier. Watkins immediately grabbed his side and walked slowly to the locker room with trainers.
The 6-foot-1, 211-pound receiver was replaced by Robert Woods, who would likely see time if Watkins were to miss any regular season games. Rib injuries are very tricky so we'll wait to hear more details about the extent.
