The Bills spent the weekend shuffling their linebacking corps because injuries had thinned out the position, but they’re getting healthier in a couple of other spots.
The team announced on Monday morning that wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been cleared to practice.
Watkins hasn’t practiced with the team since having surgery on his left foot in May and entered camp unsure about when he’d be given the green light. Watkins made steady progress in his rehab, however, and always appeared to be on track for the start of the regular season. The way he finished the season -- 5.4-100-0.78 over the final nine games -- he has WR1 potential in 2016 provided he can stay healthy.
