Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins is questionable for Sunday's Week 5 tilt with the Tennessee Titans, per the team's official injury report released on Friday. Watkins, who did take part in practices this week on a limited basis despite a calf injury, will be a game-time decision on Sunday - but it's sounding like he's expecting not to play, given what he told reporters after today's practice.

If Watkins ends up sidelined for a second straight game, he'll join three prominent players there: running backs LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Karlos Williams (concussion), and safety Bacarri Rambo (quad). Reporters were also able to speak to McCoy, who doesn't sound like he'll be returning to the lineup any time soon.

Boobie Dixon will start at running back for the Bills, with Boom Herron and Cierre Wood taking reps behind him. Chris Hogan (probable with a hamstring injury himself) and Robert Woods would see increased playing time once again if Watkins sits, playing opposite of Percy Harvin (also probable with his lingering hip injury).

Among the slew of players listed as probable: right guard John Miller (groin) and safety Aaron Williams (neck) both look poised to return to the starting lineup this week. Marquise Goodwin is listed as probable, and could play for the first time this season if he feels okay on Sunday morning. Four other prominent players - tight end Charles Clay (calf), left tackle Cordy Glenn (ankle), defensive lineman Kyle Williams (calf), and safety Corey Graham (shoulder) - are all expected to play.
