The Buffalo Bills will be without Sammy Watkins this weekend and Rex Ryan says the team has "major concern" about the receiver's foot.

Watkins is dealing with soreness in his left foot following offseason surgery to repair a broken bone.

"I don't mind doing this every week," Ryan said Friday of keeping open the possibility for Watkins to play. "If Sammy can play, then obviously we want him out there. But if this is something that is hurting this young man in any way, shape or form, then absolutely I don't want him out there."

Watkins has not been available in the locker room or spoken to reporters since Sept. 19, when he said his foot injury was "kind of out of the window," adding, "I know what I'm dealing with; the team knows what I'm dealing with. It's up to me to go out there and play."
