Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson says he is playing Saturday

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson is recovering from a hamstring injury. He is trying to heal in time for Saturday’s match up against the Washington Redskins.

“I’ll be out there,” said Johnson, via the Buffalo Bills’ website. ”I’ll be out there we’ll see how I feel game speed when everything changes a little bit. The twitches are a little bit faster. I’ll be out there
to see how it is and then we’ll be rolling after that.”

Those comments though doesn’t mean that Johnson is fully recovered from his injury and not suffering any pain.

“Yeah I still do. I feel it on almost every play,” Johnson said. ”I can still go, so it’s really no issue until it’s an issue.”

Bills head coach Doug Marrone said the goal was to have Johnson dressed and playing Saturday. Johnson had reportedly been getting into a groove with quarterback Kevin Kolb, who is coming off an injury of his own.

The third preseason game is typically the game that is most important to NFL starters.
