Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 3. HC Rex Ryan said that the chances are “not real good” that Watkins will be able to play in Week 3. Even if he does play, it’s difficult to trust a player who was last seen hobbling around the field against the Jets. Apparently, Watkins’ foot was stepped on during the team’s walkthrough. (Really.) The Bills will likely turn to Marquise Goodwin and Robert Woods to replace Watkins, though Greg Salas will also be heavily involved.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins thinks foot injury managable

His surgically repaired foot was an issue. Sammy Watkins won’t debate that. But after being able to successfully get through two games in five days, the Bills top receiver is encouraged that he’ll be able to navigate his way through the regular season while making only small concessions to his weekly regimen.

“That’s kind of out the window,” he said when asked about playing Week 3. “I know what I’m doing with it. The team knows what I’m dealing with. It’s up to me to go out there and play. If I’m out there playing I can’t feel sorry for myself. The foot is not an excuse or issue.”

Fantasy Impact:

HC Rex Ryan also thinks Watkins can be ready. Watkins did not do much at all during the media viewing portion of practice on Monday. It’s clear that a reduced workload during the practice week will probably be the norm moving forward for the dynamic receiver. What has Watkins so encouraged is the fact that he played on the foot twice in five days and he got through both no worse for the wear. He was on the field for 42 plays (86%) in the season opener and then another 40 plays (75%) last Thursday night. While it's good news for fantasy owners Watkins thinks he can play through the injury, the bad news is it could mean a lot of inconsistent weeks of fantasy production.

Schefter: Bills to fire OC Greg Roman

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Buffalo Bills firing OC Greg Roman, per league sources. Roman was NFL's top paid OC.

Fantasy Impact:

Pretty funny that the Bills came away from Thursday night's 37-31 loss thinking that the offense is the problem, but that's what happens when your head coach hires his brother to run his defense. Contrary to an earlier report, RB coach Anthony Lynn will be promoted to OC, not Chris Palmer.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall plays through 'slight knee sprain'

New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall briefly exited Thursday's 37-31 win over the Buffalo Bills after suffering a slight knee sprain before returning to the field about 15 minutes later.

He spoke with team trainers on the sideline for several minutes after suffering the injury. He then left for the locker room, but jogged back onto the field minutes later. He then re-entered the game and played the rest of the way, finishing with six catches for 101 yards.

Fantasy Impact:

Marshall played through the injury so he should be fine for Week 3 since he has an extra few days to recover.
