Sammy Watkins

Sammy Watkins Player Overview

Watkins suffered a “Jones” fracture of his left foot last spring, and missed the first 8 regular season games after surgery and being placed on IR. He was largely ineffective the last half of the year, notching just 28 catches for 430 yards. To add insult to foot injury, Watkins had to undergo a second surgery for the injury on January 20th. The team said he will be ready for the start of training camp. Perhaps. But he’s just an injury waiting to happen.
