Bills' Sammy Watkins: Hopefully I'll be back for camp

Sammy Watkins' return date on the field just got a little murky.

Watkins slightly changed his tune when asked if he'll be ready for training camp.

"You never know. Be very skeptical about it. Hopefully I'll be back (for training camp)," Watkins said, according to ESPN. "If not, then cool. Get ready for the first game."

In May, news came out that the Buffalo Bills wide receiver suffered a broken small bone in his foot and had a screw inserted.

The initial prognosis was that Watkins would be ready for training camp. The Bills and Watkins are now being conservative with rehab.

"You never know. Right now I feel good but I got to go back and train and rehab. Hopefully it feels good when I run and everything like that. I haven't ran in three or four weeks. Hopefully I'll feel good about it and I'll be on the field in training camp."

Missing some training camp action shouldn't be a concern for Buffalo. If Watkins misses all of camp then the panic meter should be adjusted accordingly. The Bills' primary objective is to make sure their No. 1 wideout is 100 percent for the regular season and that's the plan the team seems to be operating under.
