Sammy Watkins ruled out for Sunday

New, comments

He’ll be joined on the sideline with a trio of offensive players.

Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com has reported that Sammy Watkins, George Salas, Cyrus Kounadjio, and Patrick Lewis are all out for Buffalo’s game Sunday in New England.

They are joined on the injury report by Cordy Glenn, Charles Clay, Aaron Williams, and Ronald Darby, who are all listed as questionable.

This will be second game in a row that Watkins has missed and it is very possible that it won’t be his last. Joe Buscaglia of WKBW reported that what many outside One Bills Drive have thought (and feared) is now being confirmed by Rex Ryan—Watkins’ foot issue is a major concern now, and he could miss considerable time. Losing one of your top weapons always hurts, but it could be especially painful against a Bill Belichick-orchestrated defense.

Another big blow to the Bills offense could come at left tackle. Cyrus Kouandjio filled in very well for Cordy Glenn last week, but he is out this week and Glenn is listed as questionable. If Glenn is not able to play then the Bills will have to play newly signed tackle Michael Ola. Ola was on the New York Giants practice squad until coming to the Bills.

Some major losses on offense, as well as potential losses on the defense, does not bode well for the Bills heading into Foxborough to face off against the 3-0 New England Patriots.
