Watkins didn't take part in practices all week. That the slew of missed practices came after having an extended time off following last week's Thursday night loss adds to the worry.
"Odds probably not real good that he plays," Bills coach Rex Ryan said. "If he feels good and (is) up to it he will. Don't officially count him out."
Ryan added that Watkins had his foot stepped on during a walkthrough. "That didn't help, but he feels better today than he did yesterday."
The anxiety level leaps forward as we head into the weekend.
Watkins has been dealing with a foot injury after offseason surgery. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport previously reported that the wideout would likely be dealing with pain management for the rest of the season.
