Sammy Watkins is itching for training camp to open on Wednesday after missing offseason practices following January surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip.

"I'll definitely be ready to practice," Watkins said Tuesday, via Matthew Fairburn of Syracuse.com. "It's really about me just going and having fun. I'll be at practice ready to go. I'll be full go. I'll be prepared to go out there and make plays."

This is welcome news for a talented young receiver poised for a break-out season after an injury-plagued rookie campaign.

It's a promising sign that Watkins turned in one of his finest performances of last year at Denver in Week 14, two weeks after suffering the hip injury versus the Browns.

New coach Rex Ryan has hyped Watkins as a "one in every 10-year player that comes down the road."

Now that he's back to full health, Watkins has the opportunity to make good on that high praise.
