Sammy Watkins in danger of missing Week 10 with foot injury?

Sammy Watkins

Sammy Watkins has a history of foot injuries that have forced him to undergo surgery in the past, and it sounds like the Kansas City Chiefs plan to play it safe with his latest.

Watkins limped off the field during the fourth quarter of his team’s win over the Cleveland Browns last Sunday, though he later returned after having his left foot examined. An MRI revealed no structural damage, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Watkins is experiencing some pain and could end up being held out against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 10.

The Chiefs have more offensive weapons than any team in football and should have no problem handling Arizona at home, so it would make sense for them to hold Watkins out if he is feeling less than 100 percent. Watkins underwent foot surgery when he was with the Bills, though the procedure was to his right foot and not the one he appeared to injure last weekend.

Watkins has 515 yards receiving and three touchdowns this season despite being the third or fourth option in Kansas City’s passing game. The prediction Tyreek Hill made before the season has come true, and that allows the Chiefs to exercise caution with Watkins.
