Person close to situation tells AP: Tests confirm Bills WR Watkins has bruised ribs

A person close to the situation tells The Associated Press that Buffalo Bills receiver Sammy Watkins is day to day after tests confirmed a diagnosis of bruised ribs.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not provided an update on the first-round pick's status since Watkins was hurt in a 19-16 preseason loss at Pittsburgh on Saturday. Coach Doug Marrone would only say Watkins would not practice Monday.

Watkins' agent Tory Dandy described the injury as being "just a bruise." He added Watkins could have returned during the game after being hurt on the opening drive.

Marrone announced starting left tackle Cordy Glenn has been cleared for team drills. Glenn missed the first three weeks of camp because of an illness.
