Sammy Watkins questionable to play Sunday for Bills

Sammy Watkins could return to the playing field for the first time since Week 2.

Watkins is listed as questionable after coming off injured reserve because of a foot injury.

Rex Ryan was bullish on Watkins' availability, saying he thinks the receiver is "good to go" and added "we're definitely going to get him in there," via ESPN's Mike Rodak. The Bills officially activated Watkins to the 53-man roster on Saturday.

Watkins' return would be a big boost for a Bills passing game that has plateaued sans its one playmaker. Tyrod Taylor is averaging 193.5 passing YPG (30th out of 33 qualified QBs).

In two games played this season, Watkins compiled six receptions for 63 yards and zero touchdowns. He'll have a stiff test in his return Sunday against Jalen Ramsey and the Jacksonville Jaguars' fifth-ranked defense.

The Bills also listed LeSean McCoy as questionable after undergoing thumb surgery this week. Shady has been expected to play all week -- Rex was equally optimistic about his start running back as he was Watkins. Mike Gillislee (hamstring) was ruled out, which means McCoy will see the bulk of the snaps with Jonathan Williams will getting a few backup reps alongside Reggie Bush.

Percy Harvin (illness), who missed Thursday and Friday's practice sessions, is questionable.
