Former Clemson standout Sammy Watkins has been hobbled by lingering foot issues the last few years as he had two different surgeries on his left foot.

However, it appears that he is getting back to playing football as he was participating in individual drills for the first time on Tuesday. It was the first time he was able to practice during off-season workouts as he has been recovering from foot surgery. This is big news for a Buffalo offense that needs their main weapon at the wide receiver position.

In 2016, Watkins had only 28 receptions for 430 yards and two touchdowns in eight total games with the Bills.

The Bills decided in May that they would let Watkins test free agency in 2018 rather than exercising the $13.3 million injury guarantee that comes with his option. It will be interesting to see Watkins have a huge season in 2017 and test his free agent options.

Watkins has 153 catches for 2,459 yards and 17 touchdowns in three seasons with Buffalo.
