Although Watkins (calf) missed his second straight game Sunday against the Titans, coach Rex Ryan thinks his best receiver can play this week against the Bengals, BuffaloBills.com reports. "I was really encouraged with Sammy. How Sammy went through even with his workout before the game," Ryan said Monday. "We thought it was best to give him a little more time. Sometimes you can go on the practice field and all that, but that game speed is a little different and the intensity is certainly different. We thought it was best to just hold him out of that game and get him really ready for this one. I feel good about Sammy."
