Sunday’s battle between Bills receiver Stevie Johnson and Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis should go off without a hitch.

Johnson, who missed Thursday’s practice with a groin injury, was back on the practice field today and is expected to play against the Jets.

Although Johnson said he has been experiencing some tightness in his groin, he doesn’t expect it to be a nagging problem like it was for him last season. Johnson had groin surgery during the offseason.

Johnson and Revis have developed a good rivalry, with Johnson playing well against the Jets, but the Jets downplaying any notion that Johnson has Revis’s number. On Sunday, Johnson will be at close to 100 percent as he attempts to demonstrate that he can get the best of Revis. If he does get the best of Revis, Bills fans will have to hope Johnson doesn’t have any special messages on his undershirt.

UPDATE 12:55 p.m. ET: On the Bills’ official injury report, Johnson is listed as questionable.
