Stevie Johnson status for Week 6 is a ‘tough call’ according to coach Doug Marrone


Buffalo Bills are definitely a different team without both starting quarterback E.J. Manuel and speedy slot receiving Stevie Johnson.

Two key players for a Buffalo Bills offense that has been on a roll as of late despite their last defeat. On top of his back injury, Johnson is currently dealing with a death in the family.

“I’ll get ready to call him here i a little bit. You know, see how he’s doing. Obviously he’s working on getting treatment out there. I really don’t know until he comes back and we’re able to talk with him and see how he feels. It’s quite a long travel for him, to Oakland and back, so I really don’t know. ” Doug Marrone told the Buffalo News.

I have a feeling that Johnson won’t be ready to go this week as he may just take the rest of the weekend off just to make sure he’s 100 percent and is ready mentally.

Johnson has 254 receiving yards on 20 receptions with two receiving touchdowns this season.
