Sammy Watkins says he'll be ready Day 1 of training camp


ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Sammy Watkins' offseason hip surgery had kept him out of full-team drills until this week, but the second-year wide receiver said Wednesday that he'll be ready for the start of training camp.

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

Watkins played on a handful of snaps during 11-on-11 drills in Wednesday's practice after participating in one play during Tuesday's practice, which was his first live action of the spring.

Coach Rex Ryan has maintained for the past several months that Watkins will be fully healthy for the start of training camp.
