Kevon Seymour misses Buffalo Bills practice, Sammy Watkins a full-go after scare

Seymour is expected to compete for the nickel cornerback job.

Cornerback Kevon Seymour, who has been in the mix for the Buffalo Bills’ nickel cornerback job and has been the top replacement on the outside, suffered a foot injury and was not available for practice during the team’s morning session Monday at St. John Fisher College. Sammy Watkins and Cordy Glenn had much better news as practice opened.

Seymour, in his second season with the Bills after being drafted in the sixth round out of the University of Southern California, was spotted “on crutches and in a walking boot,” Monday morning, according to a tweet from WGR 550’s Sal Capaccio and is listed as day-to-day.

During his first season in Orchard Park, Seymour appeared in 15 games (three starts), making 22 tackles (20 solo) with three pass deflections. Seymour and Leonard Johnson were in an open competition for the nickel corner job, with Seymour appearing to take the lead thanks to a strong showing in training camp.

First-year head coach Sean McDermott told Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News that Seymour, with his ability to play both inside and outside, has displayed his versatility while making a name for himself during the preseason.

In other injury-related news: wide receiver Sammy Watkins certainly has encountered his fair share of injuries, and his latest, a tweaked ankle during Sunday’s practice, certainly was cause for concern. But Watkins appears to be a full participant in practice after he was spotted taking the field for Monday’s session, according to a tweet from WGRZ’s Heather Prusak. Other reporters echoed the statement later on to the delight of Bills fans everywhere.

Left tackle Cordy Glenn, who has been a limited participant in practice as he deals with an ailing foot, was back on the practice field as a full participant for the second consecutive day. Glenn had previously missed most of the team’s offseason program, including spending time wearing a walking boot.

Ryan Davis remains out with his concussion. Keith Towbridge is also still out in a walking boot.
