BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – It is looking more and more likely that Sammy Watkins will make his return to the Bills this weekend at home as Buffalo faces Jacksonville.

“He’s good to go,” Rex Ryan said after practice. Adding that the Bills top wide receiver will not play every snap, but will see playing time.

The same seems to be the case for running back LeSean McCoy who is battling a thumb injury suffered in last week’s contest at Cincinnati. He had surgery on the thumb upon the Bills return to Buffalo but is listed as questionable for the game against the Jaguars. Rex Ryan also seemed confident that the starting running back would be on the field, while veteran Reggie Bush and rookie Jonathan Williams would get the “2 and 2A roles.”

McCoy declined speaking with the media this week.

Ryan also ruled out three players for this weekend following practice – wide receiver Robert Woods (knee), running back Mike Gilislee (hamstring), and safety Robert Blanton (foot).

You can watch the Bills vs. Jaguars game on News 4 Sunday at 1p.m.
