Watkins (thigh) is listed as active for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins.

Watkins is back for his first game action since Week 5, one week before 2021 first-rounder Rashod Bateman made his NFL debut. With the rookie having caught 12 of his 20 targets for 161 yards through three games, Watkins may not return to quite the same role he saw prior to his injury, in which he averaged 58.8 snaps and 7.3 targets over the first four weeks of this season. However, the return of the 28-year-old helps solidify a Baltimore wideout corps that also includes Marquise Brown -- 46 catches for 682 yards and six TDs in eight games -- while Watkins should see steady snaps in the process, health permitting.
