Watkins inked a one-year contract with the Eagles on Saturday, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphia reports. The defensive back was an exclusive rights free agent, but will opt to remain in Philadelphia. The 25-year-old played in all 16 games last season, while starting four of them. He recorded 24 tackles and three passes defended in the process. Watkins projects to back up Malcolm Jenkins at free safety heading into the 2017 season.
Watkins (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Watkins left last Thursday's game against the Giants to be evaluated for a concussion and wasn't able to return. It appears he may have avoided a concussion, since it's unlikely he could've practiced in full if not. He'll be expected to play in Sunday's season finale against the Cowboys.
Watkins left Thursday's matchup against the Giants to be evaluated for a head injury. The injury occurred early in the third quarter, and his return is uncertain. Jalen Mills subsequently replaced Watkins in the secondary after he headed to the locker room.
Watkins (knee) was not on the Eagles' injury report Wednesday. Watkins was forced to the sideline during Monday's win over the Bears due to a right knee contusion, but he appears to be fine moving forward and shouldn't be in jeopardy of missing Sunday's Week 3 matchup against the Steelers.
Watkins suffered a right knee contusion in Monday's matchup with the Bears, and is questionable to return, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time. Terrence Brooks could see some time on in a backup role if Watkins is unable to return.
