It doesn’t seem like the Bills will have to worry about the aftereffects of Stevie Johnson’s groin surgery.
The wide receiver made good on his proclamation that he’s way ahead of schedulein his recovery from the operation by getting on the field for Tuesday’s minicamp practice. Johnson was limited to 10 snaps during the 11-on-11 and 7-on-7 portions of practice, butthat’s 10 more than the Bills thought he was going to get just a short time ago. After the session, Johnson said that his main concern at this point is mental rather than physical.
Even if Johnson doesn’t wind up doing much more than he did on Tuesday, his return for minicamp is a success. It gets the first day back on the field out of the way long before training camp and allows Johnson to focus on getting himself ready for camp instead of worrying about his physical condition.
That’s a win for the Bills as well. Johnson’s return means they can spend more time thinking about who will play across from him during the regular season.
