Stevie Johnson declares himself “full-go” at start of training camp

Bills receiver Stevie Johnson isn’t quite ready to call himself 100 percent healthy after offseason groin surgery, but he was running well at Organized Team Activities, and at the first practice of training camp he said he could do everything he needs to do on the field.

“I am still about the same [as OTAs],” Johnson said, via BuffaloBills.com. “About 90-plus [percent]. I never really say a hundred because nobody is perfect here. But I feel good about it. I do not feel anything in my groin so I am pretty good.”

Asked if that means he’s full-go, Johnson answered, “Yeah, full-go.”

Johnson said he feels a lot better running routes and catching passes than he did rehabbing from surgery.

“It is just a great feeling to get back in the swing of things and to be back comfortable,” Johnson said. “I am ready to get back into that mode of ballplayer, ballplayer, ballplayer instead of the offseason stuff. It is a good feeling to be back.”

There’s been a lot of good feeling coming out of Buffalo this offseason. Johnson is one of many Bills players who seems to be feeling good this year.

    Stevie Johnson strikes me as a rather classless player.
    All in 2011:
    He took out Eric Berry’s knee while away from the play against the Chiefs. Berry was visibly hurt, but attempted to stay on the field. Berry left for the season after his knee completely gave out the next play (no contact or cut-strongly suggesting the damage occurred from Johnson’s dirty block on the previous play). Also, Berry later admitted he held no ill will toward Johnson for his dirty play.
    Johnson put himself before his team by receiving a 15 yd unsportsman like conduct penalty for plainly mocking the opposing team (Jets) during an endzone celebration directly in front of a game official.
    He talked 6 kinds of smack to-, & about the Steelers, then dropped game winning TD pass against them (perfect throw from R. Fitzpatrick right to his hands).
    All show, no go.
