Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins had an early exit in Saturday’s game against the Steelers, leaving with a rib injury, the team announced.
The rookie, who was selected No. 4 overall, was on the end of bone-crunching hit by way of fellow rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier. Watkins immediately grabbed his side and walked slowly to the locker room with trainers.
The 6-foot-1, 211-pound receiver was replaced by Robert Woods.
In two games this preseason, Watkins has three receptions for 21 yards on seven targets.
