Bills WR Sammy Watkins Out vs Bucs


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won’t get to face Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins in today’s third preseason game in Buffalo. The fourth-overall draft pick has been ruled out due to bruised ribs.

Other inactives for the Bills include:

CB Mario Butler

TE Tony Moeaki
DT Alan Branch
DT Kyle Williams

Here is a list of the Bucs inactives:
