Although Watkins made the trip, the wideout has to improve greatly to be able to play Sunday, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
Watkins was on pace for his best game of the season considering his ankle injury happened in the second quarter after his touchdown catch. He dropped to the turf twice before walking off under his own power. It was clear he was limping, favoring his right foot in a way that leads us to believe his trip to London will be mainly for sightseeing.
As Rapoport noted, it was a sprain and not a break.
Then again, teams don't often run the risk of long flights and swelling for no reason. Stay tuned.
