Sammy Watkins was about as productive as one could be on a bum ankle. He had a career-high 168 yards receiving and caught all eight of his targets. The best part however, was Watkins was able to pace himself through the course of the game and not overtax his ankle.
Watkins only played 60 percent of the offensive snaps on Sunday, allowing him to save his ankle a bit for the short turnaround for Thursday night’s game. The Bills big lead over the Dolphins late certainly helped in that effort as the offense was able to sit him for the latter stages of the fourth quarter.
The Bills also sat LeSean McCoy after his shoulder injury with the team up on the scoreboard, though Rex Ryan said McCoy wanted to re-enter the game.
Watkins said he’ll be playing on Thursday night.
