Sammy Watkins recovering from a broken foot

Sammy Watkins, D.J. Hayden


A bad day just got worse for the Buffalo Bills.

Hours after announcing that first-round pick Shaq Lawson needed surgery to repair an old shoulder problem, the Bills have an even bigger medical issue.

According to Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News, Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins has a broken foot. There’s no timetable for his recovery time, though any injury this time of year is going to put the beginning of training camp if not the regular season in doubt.

Watkins has been on hand for offseason workouts after an early absence. He’s perhaps their top offensive weapon, and the best chance quarterback Tyrod Taylor has to be effective as a passer. Now he’s going to miss some time.
