Watkins is getting healthy as training camp nears

Former Clemson standout Sammy Watkins is currently recovering from offseason hip surgery (hip labral tear) and participated in one play during Tuesday's live practice and got in a few more plays on Wednesday.

"I'll be there first day of training camp competing," Watkins said via SportingNews.com. "It's all about now, how I'm going to take the offseason, getting in shape and coming back ready to compete."

Watkins thinks that his hip is ready to go and is excited to be back with his teammates on the field.

"It feels good," he said. "Just to know I can get on the field and compete and go out there and make a play or two, just to get back there, is a great feeling to me, and just to see coaches confidence in putting me back there and knowing that I'm healthy, it was a great feeling for me."

Buffalo Bills' training camp begins on Friday, July 31 at 10 AM.

The former Clemson product had 65 catches for 982 yards and six touchdowns in his rookie season (started all 16 games). He was also rookie of the week three times during the season and had four games with more than 100 receiving yards.
