Whaley on Watkins outlook with calf injury

Bills GM Doug Whaley did not provide a specific timetable for Sammy Watkins calf injury, but he did express hope that Buffalo’s top wideout could return this week.

In his weekly appearance on Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550, Whaley was asked if he thinks Watkins’ injury could be a long term thing. This was his response.

“Everything points to that it’s not that severe,” said Whaley. “We’re hoping to see how he responds this week. We have our fingers crossed that he may be in this week. There’s no indication that it’s going to be something long term. But I never say never with injuries, especially with soft tissue injuries. He could go out there and test it and something could go wrong. Soft tissue injuries are harder to predict.”

Whaley was also asked about LeSean McCoy’s hamstring injury and the Bills front office executive would not put a defined timetable on McCoy either, saying that soft tissue injuries are difficult to gauge and predict.
