Sammy Watkins Could Miss Several Weeks Because of Pain in Surgically Repaired Foot

Sammy Watkins is reportedly “feeling discomfort” in his surgically repaired foot. Watkins had X-rays after the Buffalo Bills season-opening loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He had a screw inserted in his foot in May. There is no new break, but he could be out for a number of weeks according to the New York Post:

The feeling now is whether Watkins can manage the pain in his foot. There was a fear on Sunday night that the wideout could miss the rest of the season. Medical personnel, including renowned foot specialist Robert Anderson, have advised Watkins against a surgical remedy for the issue at this time. It’s possible, however, that Watkins could be shut down for several weeks — if not longer — depending on how his foot responds in the coming days.

Watkins played all 16 games in his rookie season, but missed 3 games in 2015. So far, the Bills are not winning the regular season.
