Bills WR Stevie Johnson says he will 'definitely' play after bye week
The Bills deactivated wide receiver Stevie Johnson for their game last Sunday, choosing to give him a full two weeks to rest and heal from his groin injury. Johnson believes that time off will certainly be enough for him to return to play.
"I'll definitely be suited up," Johnson said via the team's official website. "I think I'll be much better than what I was this past week. I'm optimistic about it.
"With my situation, it's definitely a good time for the bye week. Get another week to try to strengthen my core and get these little nagging injuries out of the way."
Johnson will be just a mid-range WR3 at full strength but one with a couple of good upcoming matchups -- Atlanta in Week 13 and Jacksonville in Week 15. Johnson has been much more important to the Bills than to fantasy owners this year.
