Bills WR Sammy Watkins Making Progress After Foot Surgery

Sammy Watkins continues to make progress in his recovery from foot surgery, Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News reports.

At Tuesday’s start of mandatory minicamp, the Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver took part in 11-on-11 team drills. He was on the field at New Era Field for four or five plays.

During last week’s OTA sessions, Watkins only participated on a limited basis, doing individual work.

“It was just really, Sammy was in a position, going into practice, where he felt in a good place,” coach Sean McDermott told reporters. “Last week it was individual, and he built a nice foundation last week. And the pitch count (Tuesday) was right around four or five reps of team drills, and he did a nice job.”

McDermott had said earlier in the day the Bills’ focus was to get Watkins ready for training camp, which begins in about six weeks.

“He’s worked extremely hard in the training room, attacking the rehab process, and now, these last couple weeks, we’ve been able to get him back on the field,” the coach said.
