Sammy Watkins is close to being unleashed in Buffalo.
After undergoing offseason foot surgery, the Bills wideout has passed his obligatory conditioning test, per Tom Pelissero of USA Today.
Watkins opened training camp on the physically unable to perform list -- and he remains on that list for now -- but the third-year pass-catcher has been running for weeks and promised earlier this month to be "back on top soon."
Despite the positive development, Watkins isn't quite ready for the practice field, the story said. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the team is exercising caution before taking him off the PUP list. Watkins broke a small bone in his foot this offseason. Other sources said it will be about a week before Watkins is back.
