ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins practiced fully Monday for the first time since injuring his ribs in a preseason loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"No limits," coach Doug Marrone said of Watkins' participation in practice.

Watkins sat out Saturday's preseason loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and was limited in practice last week, so his increased participation Monday is a positive sign in his recovery from bruised ribs.

The Bills plan on playing some offensive starters, including quarterback EJ Manuel, in Thursday's preseason finale against the Detroit Lions, but Watkins deferred on Monday his status to Marrone.

That wasn't a surprise, given Marrone wasn't happy with Watkins talking about his injury last week.
