ORCHARD PARK, NY - As of Tuesday, wide receiver Sammy Watkins has not been ruled out for Thursday's home opener against the Jets. In fact, Watkins himself said on Monday his surgically repaired foot feels fine and he'll definitely play.
On Tuesday, head coach Rex Ryan didn't have much more to add on the situation and said he hadn't seen Watkins yet that day.
"I assume what he said is accurate," Ryan said.
Watkins was working out with a trainer in the ADPRO Sports Training Center while the rest of the team was outside for their walk-through practice. The media only saw ten minutes of practice on Tuesday and when that was over, Watkins and his trainer walked outside. He was listed as a non-participant.
Starting left tackle Cordy Glenn also did not practice on Tuesday after re-injuring his ankle in Sunday's game. But Rex Ryan would not rule him out for Thursday's game.
"I know it’s early in the week, but I guess we’ll see how it progresses, how he progresses. Really with all those guys, see how they progress. It is a quick turnaround but we’ll monitor it and if he’s ready to go, then obviously---it’s not like you have to have reps, because nobody’s getting reps. If he’s ready to go, then we’ll play him. If not, Cyrus Kouandjio’s done a nice job for us," Ryan explained.
