Watkins (hamstring) didn't practice Friday.
Watkins has logged consecutive DNPs to begin the week after leaving last Thursday's win over the Vikings due to a hamstring strain. The wide receiver appears to be trending towards an absence Monday in Tampa Bay, though Watkins will have one more opportunity to return to the practice field Saturday.

Watkins (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday.
Watkins left Week 2 early with a hamstring strain and never returned. In his place, veteran Olamide Zaccheaus ran 18 routes as the slot receiver but wasn't targeted against the Vikings. With the Eagles playing Monday night, Watkins has an extra day to heal up.
Watkins (hamstring) wasn't taking part in drills during the media-access portion of Thursday's practice, Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Watkins is thus poised to go down as a non-participant on the Eagles' first Week 3 injury report, though the wideout was spotted catching footballs from a JUGS machine on the side field during Thursday's session, according to Tolentino. The fourth-year wideout was limited to just 11 snaps in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Vikings last Thursday after exiting the game early with the hamstring injury. The Eagles will hope that Watkins will be able to increase his practice activity the next two days, but if the 25-year-old is unable to play Monday at Tampa Bay, Olamide Zaccheaus would step in as the Eagles' No. 3 wideout.
Watkins has been ruled out for the rest of Thursday's game against the Vikings due to a hamstring injury, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.
Watkins suffered the injury in the first half and has not returned to the game since. He was spotted briefly jogging on the sideline, but he apparently is not well enough to return. Positively for Watkins, the Eagles have 10 days off prior to their next game, so he may be able to return without any additional missed time. Olamide Zaccheaus is expected to take over duties in the slot for Philadelphia.
Watkins is questionable to return to Thursday's game against Minnesota due to a hamstring injury, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.
Watkins exited the game in the second quarter and was spotted running on the sideline to test the injury. Olamide Zaccheaus took over as the slot receiver and figures to take on a larger role if Watkins is sidelined for any significant amount of time.
Watkins pulled in both his targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 25-20 victory over New England.
Watkins averaged 1.9 catches and 20.8 yards per game last season, so his Week 1 performance was right in line with expectations. Jalen Hurts target his wideouts a total of 22 times, with Watkins claiming the only two targets which didn't go to A.J. Brown or DeVonta Smith. Watkins does at least have a firm grip on the third receiver job in Philadelphia, as he out-snapped Olamide Zaccheaus by a 52-7 margin, but as long as Brown and Smith are on the team, there likely won't be too many targets to go around.
Watkins (hamstring) isn't listed on the injury report for Week 1 against New England.
Neither is Olamide Zaccheaus, who was signed to compete with Watkins and dealt with a shoulder injury during the second half of August. It seems Watkins is the favorite to keep the No. 3 job, at least for now, but a timeshare wouldn't be surprising for what figures to be a lightly targeted role so long as AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith stay healthy.
Watkins (hamstring) will be limited in practice Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Watkins has been dealing with the injury for a couple of weeks now. Although it's good news he's able to get on the practice field, it is concerning that he doesn't appear to yet be fully recovered. With that said, Week 1 is still just under three weeks away, so the 25-year-old has plenty of time to get healthy.
Coach Nick Sirianni said Watkins didn't play in Saturday's 20-19 preseason loss at Baltimore due to a hamstring injury, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
While A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith were among Eagles starting offensive players that were DNPs, Watkins' absence was due to a health concern along with Britain Covey (hamstring) and Deon Cain (ankle). Greg Ward did see the field Saturday but made an early exit due to cramps. Watkins seems secure in his role as Philadelphia's No. 3 WR, but the current issue could allow newcomer Olamide Zaccheaus to make inroads on the job.
