He was a bit hobbled making his way up to the postgame lectern after his personal career-best 168-yard receiving day Sunday in the win over Miami. But Sammy Watkins doesn’t see the short turnaround before the team’s Thursday night game against the Jets in New York as a problem.
When asked if he’ll be able to suit up Thursday night after playing with a bum ankle, Watkins answered in the affirmative.
“Most definitely,” Watkins said. “I just got to go through keeping my body hydrated, treat whatever injuries are hurting. I should be fine.”
If Sunday is any indication how he’s capable of playing at less than 100 percent, he should be fine indeed.
It's going to be a tough matchup against the Jets, but Watkins is coming off a big game. His injury is at least something to keep an eye on, especially to see how the ankle responds coming off Sunday's game.
