Just as we had settled back into our chairs from discussing the news of Shaq Lawson's shoulder surgery around the water cooler, even more bad Buffalo Bills news was broken, courtesy of Ty Dunne at The Buffalo News and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network: star receiver Sammy Watkins has a broken foot.
Some more bad news for the #Bills this Monday. Multiple team sources tell me that wide receiver Sammy Watkins has broken his foot.— Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) May 16, 2016
This is an impressive new low for the team: managing to have two impact players going under the knife before the onset of organized team activites. Unlike Lawson's injury however, Rapoport reports that Watkins' injury carries a short timetable.
#Bills WR Sammy Watkins suffered a broken small bone in his foot & had a screw inserted, source said. Should be ready for training camp.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 16, 2016
We will update you on the Watkins injury as more information comes in. In the meantime, this is a reminder that being a Bills fan is one of the most challenging exercises in sports.
