At his daily post-practice press conference, Bills head coach Doug Marrone announced that WR Sammy Watkins, the reigning Offensive Rookie of the Month, suffered a groin injury and was unable to finish. Here’s what Marrone, Kyle Orton and Eric Wood had to say when asked about the situation.
Q: What’s happened to Sammy?
A: He got hurt in practice and didn’t finish.
Q: Is that a different groin injury than he had last week?
A: It’s an injury.
Q: Is there any more light you can shine on Sammy’s injury situation? How concerning is that injury?
A: Again, I can’t sway the line or fantasy or anything like that, but I don’t know. He didn’t finish practice, so I don’t know where he’s going to be tomorrow. I don’t know where he’s going to be. I don’t know. I really don’t.
Q: What’d he do?
A: Groin. He could play or he could be out for two to three weeks. Who knows? He’s like Fred. I don’t know. I have no information, except that he didn’t finish practice.
Q: Kyle, what happened with Sammy’s injury from your perspective?
A: You’ll have to ask him. I don’t talk about that stuff.
Q: Eric, if Sammy (Watkins) is down this week it’s a pretty big hurdle to overcome don’t you think?
A: Yeah, obviously he’s a really good player for us. Anytime you lose one of your top guys that’s pretty big.
