UPDATE: It appears that the Buffalo Bills dodged a bullet with their stud rookie WR Sammy Watkins.
"Sounds like the #Bills dodged serious injury with WR Sammy Watkins — again. Reinjured his ribs yesterday, but should be good to go," tweeted Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
As noted below, Watkins has a ton of potential but isn't a shoo-in for monster fantasy stats in his first campaign.
Most teams rest their starters in the preseason finale, but the Buffalo Bills had rookie WR Sammy Watkins in action Thursday evening after he missed most of the previous two preseason tilts with a rib injury. Unfortunately, he exited the game after taking a forearm to his ribs.
