Ryan emphasized that Watkins, after battling a rash of injuries during his young and promising career, remains a possibility to play this weekend against the Tennessee Titans, per the team's official website.
"Everything points to (his injury being) not that severe,"Bills general manager Doug Whaley told Buffalo's WGR-AM on Tuesday. "We're hoping to see how he responds this week. We have our fingers crossed that he may be in this week."
Here's a look at other injuries we're tracking on Wednesday:
- Marshawn Lynch's status remains undecided for the Seahawks' tilt against the Bengals on Sunday. Coach Pete Carroll told reporters his star running back is day-to-day as he continues to nurse a hamstring injury. Carroll also expressed hope running back Fred Jackson will return this week from a high-ankle sprain. Cornerback Marcus Burley will have surgery on his injured thumb Wednesday. There is no timetable for his return.
