Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins, questionable for Saturday's divisional playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a foot injury, is expected to play, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Watkins has played in just one game since injuring his right foot in Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns.

They were correct.

Better than any receiver to wear a bills uniform this season by a long shot. And he’s their 3rd option.

That has to suck... What can you do to prevent that? It just happens

Yeah it looks like something he's going to deal with the rest of his career. Just gotta manage it. I remember back when it happened,  ppl were comparing it to Julio's foot injury , hasn't worked out the same for Sammy to say the least. Man Mahomes has weapons galore

..pretty astonishing to read the human foot contains 26 bones!......some have to be as big as a toothpick.......imagine the pounding the feet of these guys take in the NFL due to size, speed, cuts, etc......surprised there aren't more problems......Sammy is one of the unfortunate ones with chronic issues......

Interesting stats:

 

Sammy in 10 games - 40 rec, 519 yards, 3 TDs, with a longest catch of 50

 

Foster in pretty much his last 7 games - 27 rec, 541 yards, 3 TDs, with a longest catch of 75

 

Also, in 15 games with LA last season, Sammy managed 39 rec  for 593 yards and 8 TDs.

You actually have to be on the field for games that count in order to be better than any of our receivers. Get serious. He has FRICKIN MAHOMES, NFL MVP, as his quarterback, and he STILL can't live up to his draft position or contract.

 

Robert Foster had more yards than him this season. Take a guess as to what their pay disparity is.

 

Yeah.

He seriously his foot hurt. He rushed back too quick (to prove his toughness to dumb fans) and it never healed right.  Believe it or not, feet are very important for athletes.

 

and laugh at it all you want, but Sammy’s presence helps their offense.  I mean it won’t have the impact of Jordan Matthews or Kelvin Benjamin but it will help.

Funny because Robert Foster as a UDFA was more productive than Sammy.

 

If you are thinking 2014 Sammy Watkins, then maybe you are right, but 2018 Sammy Watkins can’t stay on the field.

Yeah.

 

 

He was pace for 1,000 yards and he got hurt.  Why are Bills fans so bitter towards ex players?  Injuries are killing his career but you are kinda dumb if you don’t think he won’t be our most talented receiver.

Sammy averaged 16 more yards per game and that includes the Rams game where he played one drive.

So healthy Sammy vs. Foster. You’re picking Foster?

Right and he had a few costly drops in the NFC divisional playoff.

 

He’s a good WR at full strength, but a considerable notch below the upper echelon reciever class in the NFL.

 

Certainly he did not live up to his draft status.  Like Rick said....”another Whaley gem.”

Talent doesn’t mean squat if you’re not on the field.

No,  but Sammy’s health is part of the equation.  He’s been hobbled by injuries, so going forward I’ll take Foster’s upside and meager salary over Watkin’s injuries and bloated salary.  He’s not worth the $$$$

I’m not sure about the Foster but I agree with the rest.  Trading up for any non qb is dumb (see Jones, Zay) but Sammy was one of the greatest college receivers I have ever seen.  The fact that Sean McVay and Andy Reid paid big resources to get him speaks volumes.

 

but sadly, he will never live up to his draft status because of the injuries.  And I don’t why so many Bills have animosity towards the guy.  I met him a few times and he genuinely liked being on the Bills.  I wish him well.

But doesn’t the fact that McVay was willing to move on from Sammy after 1 season speak volumes as well?  I think that LA felt the same way a lot of Bills fan do, he’s just not good enough to get the money he wants.

 

I have no animosity toward him.  I just don’t think he was  anywhere near as good as his hype, and even when he was healthy he never seemed to step up and take over games the way that a #1 WR usually does.
