TEAMS: Buffalo Bills


Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson underwent offseason surgery on his groin and now he’s starting to experience some soreness due to all the work he’s been putting in.

“The entire training camp I was good,” said Johnson via WGR 550 in Buffalo. “[Wednesday], I don’t know if this happened [Tuesday] or what not but I guess it just got a little sore. It’s no like pop or injury — just sore that’s all it is.”

Johnson says he doesn’t expect to miss any time.

“No issue really, I know I can play a full game with it, but I just felt it,” he said. “I went from not feeling it at all to a little soreness coming around. I think that’s just from the reps being heightened this week.”
