Bills' Sammy Watkins: Training camp status unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Though Watkins -- who is bouncing back from offseason foot surgery -- retains optimism that he will be able to practice during training camp, the wideout hints that such an outcome is not a lock, ESPN.com reports. "You never know," Watkins noted when asked if the Bills would allow him to practice early on in training camp. "Right now I feel good, but I got to go back and train and rehab. Hopefully it feels good when I run and everything like that. I haven't ran in three or four weeks. Hopefully I'll feel good about it and I'll be on the field in training camp."

Meanwhile, coach Rex Ryan said earlier this month that it was "too early to tell" when Watkins might return to the field, but at this stage Ryan believes that the wideout "is going to get some work [in camp]." Regardless of when Watkins is able to take the field, however, the expectation remains that he'll be ready for action in advance of the regular season, barring any setbacks.

Bills' Jordan Mills: Right tackle job could be his
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills appears to be the frontrunner for the Bills' starting right tackle spot, The Buffalo News reports. "Right now, it's a case where Seantrel's sick and Mills has started at Chicago for me and started for us this year," offensive line coach Aaron Kromer said earlier this week. "He's doing a solid job. He understands what to do and how to do it."

Seantrel Henderson has the most upside of the three-man group competing for the starting job, but he's had some serious issues with Crohn's disease and is just getting back into football shape. Meanwhile, Cyrus Kouandjio has been a bust since being picked 44th overall in 2014. The Bills run a complex and effective run-heavy offense, and Mills has the best grasp of Greg Roman's playbook. Keep an eye on Henderson, though, as his physical abilities are quite a bit higher than Henderson's.

Bills' Sammy Watkins: Expects to be ready for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins expects to be ready for the start of training camp July 30, TSN.ca reports. "For training camp, I think I'll definitely be available," Watkins said. "I might sit out two or three days. It's all about how I feel within those days. The goal is to come back and be prepared for training camp."

Watkins had surgery in April to address stress fractures in his left foot, with most reports suggesting he had a Jones fracture, which is a common injury that typically sidelines players for 8-12 weeks. The timetable puts him on track for training camp, and he's no longer wearing a walking boot or limping. Still, Watkins made it clear he'll take a cautious approach, even conceding that he'll need to test his foot out when the Bills open camp. Given the high rate of re-injury with foot fractures, the team may opt to be even more cautious than Watkins wants.

Bills' Robert Woods: Readying for key role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Woods appears to have taken his game up a notch throughout offseason work so far and was the best receiver during this week's minicamp, BuffaloBills.com reports.

While offseason minicamp stories should always get taken with a grain of salt, the takeaway here is that Woods will enter the season a lot healthier than last year. Of course, Sammy Watkins will get most of the targets, but with Watkins not proving he can stay healthy and with no clear No. 3 or No. 4 receiver behind him, Woods could see a lot of single coverage and secondary targets. A step up from his 47/552/3 season a year ago (14 games) is not out of the question.

Bills' Cardale Jones: Will be "exposed to everything"
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jones will have "everything" thrown at him during his rookie campaign, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW Buffalo reports.

In full, offensive coordinator Greg Roman stated: "You know, we are trying to really throw everything at him which is somewhat unfair, but in the long run, it is probably the best way to do things." However, Roman justified the plan as a way to prepare Jones for minicamp, and due to the fact that a thorough evaluation of him as a player can't be completed until he's been fully exposed to the offense. In other words, the Bills spent a fourth-round draft pick on Jones solely because of his tantalizing upside, and fully understand that the young gunslinger enters the league as a developmental project after seeing just limited action as a starter at Ohio State. Starting QB Tyrod Taylor is under contract with the Bills for another two years, with the second year a club option, allowing Roman at least a couple years time to groom and polish the rookie quarterback.
