I checked this morning as well, but like you said nothing definitive.
He's a track and field athlete on top of college WR. I know one doesn't lead to the other but I think it's safe to say that he's physically capable of rebounding from a knee injury the same way AP and Griffin.
He appears to be the same calibre biologically speaking.
I don't think this hurts his top 15 status.
In my mind it means Watkins just locked up the boards #1 WR spot.
What do you think
We have to see how bad the injury is, but it does seem that Watkins will be the first receiver off the board.
This draft looks deep in wide receivers and there are some small school guys that are looking good.
So much time, so much speculation.
Our draft is going to be impacted by what Baldwin and Patton do in the remaining 12 games, and it does not help that Patton broke his foot.
an update (?) on Lee.
USC junior WR Marqise Lee believes he could return following the school's bye week after suffering a severe knee sprain.
The Trojans are off this week following their significant loss to Arizona State, which led to the firing of head coach Lane Kiffin. Lee and Kiffin appeared to be on different pages the last few weeks, but hopefully the junior receiver is capable to suit up against Arizona on October 10. He's had a rough start to the season thanks to drops and poor quarterback play.
