3. Stars Could Miss The Action
Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy could miss the action on the sidelines due to injury. This sounds like a devastating blow to the Bills offense but it really isn’t anything they can’t endure. Watkins has only 7 receptions on the season for 99 yards. He hasn’t developed a chemistry with Taylor and being banged up has clearly hampered him. As stated before, Karlos Williams is a more than capable back up to McCoy.
Watkins has been diagnosed with a minor calf sprain according to reports. It isn’t unforeseeable that he could play, but the Bills won’t have motivation to put an injured Watkins on the field. The Bills main offensive weapons have been Percy Harvin, Charles Clay and Robert Woods. Harvin has 16 receptions for 192 yards and 1 touchdown. Clay has 12 receptions for 144 yards and 2 touchdowns. Woods has 9 receptions for 125 yards and a touchdown.
The Bills have plenty of stars on their offense. They will be just fine replacing the production of Watkins and McCoy.
