Stevie Johnson Injury: Bills WR Still Healing

While Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson continues to heal from a groin injury, it does not appear that he is too concerned about his condition either way, according to official team transcripts.

When asked how he feels about his groin heading into the Bills' Week 2 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, Johnson said the following:

"I am not even thinking about my groin anymore. It is what it is. Whether it is hurting or not, I do not even care anymore. I am just going to go play football."

The Bills receiving corps is extremely thin with Johnson's ailment and the loss of David Nelson for the season, which is something that Johnson feels pressured to take into his own hands -- apparently, whether he's physically ready to do so or not.

"Yeah, it is tough because you have a guy in David who has played well. He goes down. Then you have your stud back in (Fred Jackson) and he goes down. So it is like ‘come on Stevie, let’s do something. Let’s put some points up and turn things around. Let’s get back to the old you.’"

Regardless of who is on the field for Buffalo, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to have to improve upon his Week 1 performance, in which he threw three interceptions in the Bills' 48-28 loss to the New York Jets.
