Robert Woods (ankle surgery) is aiming to be ready for next month's mandatory minicamp.

Woods went under the knife in February. "I'm actually pretty much full-go, but they just want to stick to the schedule anyway, just to make sure," Woods said Thursday. "They just want to be safe and just keep pushing forward." Translation: Although Woods might be ready for minicamp, the Bills will likely play things safe and hold him out until training camp.

Robert Woods underwent offseason ankle surgery.

It sounds like a scope or some other minor cleanout procedure. Woods isn't taking part in team drills at OTAs, but was doing some individual stuff and should be fine for training camp. He's ticketed to line up opposite Sammy Watkins in two-wide sets and move into the slot in three-wide formations.

Robert Woods is expected to take over Buffalo's slot receiver vacancy created by the Stevie Johnson trade.

In three-wide packages, the Bills will trot out Mike Williams and rookie Sammy Watkins on the perimeter, with Woods working inside. Per's Chris Brown, the coaching staff "believes in" Woods "a lot," and multiple assistants on the 2013 staff thought "by the end of last season that (Woods) would be the best receiver on the roster." Watkins has the highest long-term ceiling in Buffalo's wideout corps. Williams is the top red-zone threat. Woods could flirt with WR3 value in PPR leagues if E.J. Manuel takes a step forward.

Robert Woods remains penciled in as the Bills' No. 2 receiver.

Woods is expected to beat out Mike Williams for the right to line up opposite Sammy Watkins. Speedy Marquise Goodwin will be a situational lid-lifter. It leaves Woods in essentially the same role he had as a rookie last year, when he was an every-down player and finished with a 46-587-3 line in 14 games. Projecting a major Year 2 bump would require a leap of faith in E.J. Manuel taking a big step forward.
May 9 - 4:55 PM

Robert Woods caught one pass for 27 yards in Buffalo's Week 17 loss to the Patriots.

The one-catch effort was Woods' first in six games, and just the third of his rookie season. The No. 41 pick of April's draft, Woods proved to be one of the league's more polished rookie receivers, finishing with 40 catches for 587 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games. He developed a nice rapport with E.J. Manuel. Woods has the inside track on the Bills' No. 2 job next season, and will have some WR3 appeal in an offense that should be better.

Bills WR Robert Woods was ejected from Sunday's Week 15 game against the Dolphins for throwing a punch.

Midway through the third quarter, Woods was engaged in a run block with Dolphins S Reshad Jones. The two got tangled and Woods clearly threw a right-handed haymaker. His Week 15 is over with three catches for 70 yards on five targets. The Bills already lost fellow rookie wideout Marquise Goodwin to a knee injury.

Robert Woods caught five passes for 82 yards and one touchdown in Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Woods was targeted a team-high six times. He made a nice diving catch for a 20-yard gain in the second quarter before capping the drive off with a seven-yard touchdown catch on a simple hook route. Woods and E.J. Manuel had a strong connection early in the season, and they found it again in this one. Woods isn't on the re-draft radar but remains worthy of a hold in dynasty formats.

Robert Woods was limited to 20 yards on three catches in the Bills' Week 14 loss to the Buccaneers.

Woods has managed stat lines of 2-39 and 3-20 since returning healthy from a high ankle sprain. He's a Dynasty league prospect and his value ends there.

Robert Woods caught two passes for 39 yards in Sunday's Week 13 loss to the Falcons.

Coming off his ankle injury, Woods saw just three targets compared to four for burner Marquise Goodwin. The duo appeared to be rotating in two-wide sets. Woods is averaging just 2.4 catches for 22.8 yards with no touchdowns over the last five weeks and will be a risky WR4 even in a good matchup against the Bucs next week.

Robert Woods (ankle) is practicing in full this week.

Just like Stevie Johnson (groin), Woods should be close to 100 percent as the Bills come out of their bye. The concern is that his play has leveled off over the last few weeks and Marquise Goodwin is impressing. Consider Woods a mere WR4 even in a dream matchup with the Falcons.

Robert Woods (ankle) and Stevie Johnson (groin) both returned to practice Monday.

The Bills held a session Monday as they came out of their bye and it looks like their two starting wideouts will be ready to play against the Falcons. Averaging 3.0 catches for 29.6 yards with no touchdowns over his last five games, Woods will be a mere WR4 even in this dream matchup. Marquise Goodwin could even push him for snaps in some two-wide sets. Johnson, who is averaging 5.2 catches for 54.2 yards with one score over his last four games, will be a WR3.

Coach Doug Marrone confirmed Robert Woods (ankle) won't play this week against the Jets.

Marrone said Monday that he was "leaning toward" holding Woods out through the Week 12 bye, and that's exactly what the Bills will do. With Stevie Johnson's (groin) status up in the air, Marquise Goodwin and T.J. Graham will see increased playing time again this week. Woods is eyeing a Week 13 return.

The Bills are "leaning towards" holding Robert Woods (ankle) out for Week 11.

The word comes straight from coach Doug Marrone, who also confirmed Woods' injury is a high sprain. The Bills finally go on bye in Week 12, so it would make a good deal of sense to hold Woods out against the Jets to give him two weeks to get back to full health. Woods displayed good chemistry with E.J. Manuel before Manuel's knee injury, but he won't be returning as more than a WR4.
Mon, Nov 11, 2013 02:18:00 PM

Robert Woods (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's Week 10 game against the Bills.

Woods hasn't practiced since spraining his ankle last week. E.J. Manuel, who is active and starting for the first time since his knee injury, will look to Stevie Johnson, T.J. Graham and Marquise Goodwin. The rest of the Bills inactives: QB Jeff Tuel, CB Justin Rogers, RB Ronnie Wingo, DB Brandon Smith, LB Ty Powell and OL Antoine McClain.
