Wide Receiver Sammy Watkins of the Buffalo Bills has returned to the field after having offseason foot surgery. Watkins has been gradually playing and training as he recovered from surgery during the spring for his broken foot. X-rays taken in late July revealed that Watkins’s foot has healed. “With this injury it’s more mental than physical,” Watkins said. “There’s going to be good days and bad days, but I feel great.”.
