Sammy Watkins, WR (GB)

Should return to practice Friday

Coach Matt LaFleur said "the goal" is for Watkins (undisclosed) to practice Friday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Watkins appears set for activation from the non-football injury list Friday, which would allow him to rejoin training camp activities and continue establishing chemistry with new quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The 29-year-old wideout is facing clear opportunity to earn a starting role in Green Bay's offense this season, so it would be encouraging to see him return without missing much time. Meanwhile, rookie first-round pick Christian Watson (knee) remains on the PUP list.
