As the Buffalo Bills wrapped up their first week of organized team activities Thursday, the team was without possibly its top two receivers this upcoming season: Sammy Watkins and rookie Zay Jones.

Jones, the No. 37 pick in last month's draft, injured his knee in Tuesday's practice and is considered week-to-week. Watkins remains sidelined by January foot surgery, a follow-up procedure after Watkins missed eight games last season with lingering soreness from a broken foot last offseason.

Watkins was not dressed for Thursday's practice, but worked with the strength and conditioning staff. At one point, Watkins held a script of play calls and motioned with hands where he would run as he watched his teammates on the field.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor believes Watkins has a sharpened focus as he enters his fourth NFL season.
