Tuesday was a mildly encouraging day for those in Sammy Watkins' camp.
The Bills wide receiver was listed as a non-participant in the team's regular practice, but was dressed for the walkthrough portion, per the team's media department. Watkins has been dealing with discomfort in his surgically repaired foot since Sunday's 13-7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday.
On Monday, the receiver said he went to see the team's trainer because it "felt like it was tired," and he "wanted to make sure everything was fine." He added that he will be playing Thursday against the New York Jets.
Reports came on out Monday Watkins could be shut down for weeks, possibly even the year because of his foot issues. But he came out shortly after and said he was playing. It appears he's on track to, even on a short week. If he plays, he'll obviously be at less than 100-percent.
