The Bills are continuing to be cautious with star receiver Sammy Watkins.

Despite returning to the field in Week 12 from a nagging foot injury and logging 11 catches for 172 yards and a score in the last three games, Watkins is sitting out Bills practice Wednesday.

Bills tight end Charles Clay (knee), offensive lineman Cordy Glenn (back), defensive tackle Kyle Williams (back) and linebacker Lerentee McCray (concussion) are also sitting out practice.

Here are other injury notes we're tracking Wednesday:

  1. Bengals receiver A.J. Green (hamstring) returned to practice.
  1. The Vikingsannounced running back Adrian Peterson has been designated to return from injured reserve and will practice.
