Chiefs' Sammy Watkins: Setback confirmed
Coach Andy Reid confirmed Watkins suffered a setback with his right foot during Thursday's practice but noted that results from the wideout's MRI weren't too discouraging, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Reid didn't address reports about Watkins' injury potentially sidelining him until the playoffs, instead focusing on the short-term outlook with his stated expectation the wideout will be listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Baltimore. Held out of practice Friday to conclude Week 14 preparations, Watkins doesn't appear to have any real shot at playing. With the newly signed Kelvin Benjamin still getting up to speed in Reid's offense, the Chiefs likely will rely on Demarcus Robinson and Gehrig Dieter behind starters Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on any meaningful contribution from Watkins the rest of the season.
