The Buffalo Bills' top receiver suffered a broken bone in his foot and had a screw inserted in April. The plan was for Watkins to be ready for training camp, but the wideout said Wednesday he's unsure about whether he'll participate at all before the regular season.
Watkins added that he's not positive when he suffered the injury. He's been seen at Bills workouts in a walking boot.
"Just something happened and I went and got checked and we figured out it was a stress fracture," Watkins said via The Buffalo News on Wednesday. "And it's doing great."
"It's probably the best thing that happened, because it was a stress fracture. I could have broke my whole foot. Something crazy could have happened coming back (for offseason workouts), so I'm just happy to be here and healthy."
Coach Rex Ryan echoed Watkins' comments, saying he not sure if the receiver will be ready for training camp, but not worried.
Taylor was criticized last season for not targeting Watkins enough. Some in the organization believed part of the problem was the quarterback's struggles to see the middle of the field -- where Watkins excels. It's something Taylor is focusing on improving this offseason.
