Rex Ryan ‘feels good’ about Sammy Watkins (calf) returning this week
Over the past two weeks, the Buffalo Bills have scored just 24 points. Although they were able to eke out a win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 5, the offense has struggled to put up points.
One common denominator between those two games is the fact that Sammy Watkins has missed both with a calf injury. Without him, Tyrod Taylor has thrown for just 374 yards and two touchdowns, showing how sorely missed Watkins is.
Fortunately, the Bills may get him back on Sunday.
“I feel good about Sammy for next week's game,” Rex Ryan said Monday. “We wanted to hold him out one more week.”
There was a chance Watkins could play in Week 5, but he missed too much time in practice and wasn't able to get up to full speed due to the calf. With his outlook bright for Week 6, the Bills should have a more potent aerial attack against the 5-0 Cincinnati Bengals.
