Stevie Johnson good to go for Bills’ minicamp

After groin surgery in April, Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has been unable to participate in Organized Team Activities and was expected to miss the team’s upcoming minicamp. But after recently pronouncing himself “way ahead of schedule,” Johnson now says he’s ready to work at minicamp.

Johnson said on NFL Network’s Total Access that he will, in fact, be on the field when the Bills open their minicamp on Tuesday.

“I’m looking forward to stepping out there with my team,” Johnson said. “I will be out there for minicamp with the Bills.”

That’s a much faster recovery than was previously expected for Johnson, who at the time of his surgery wasn’t even sure if he’d be ready to go for training camp in late July, let alone minicamp in mid-June. Johnson, however, says he’s been working hard in his rehab while his teammates have been working hard at OTAs, and now he feels ready to join them.

“At first, I thought I might not be able to go until mid-training camp or something, but I’ve been motivated to get back and watching everybody work is extra motivation to get right,” Johnson said. “It’s been going well, so I’ll be out there for minicamp with them and we’ll get the ball rolling.”

It’s great news for the Bills that Johnson is ready to roll earlier than expected.

    I can’t wait to get this season started!! Being optimistic is the key to being a Bills fan.. But this year we may actually have a chance to contend for a playoff spot, and Stevie is a big piece.. we haven’t had a real possession receiver since Eric Moulds. Let’s go BUFFALO!!

    If I’m a Bills fan, I like my team’s future.

    I’m not, but I would.
