Bills head coach Doug Marrone said last week the goal was to have Stevie Johnson dress and play Saturday afternoon against Washington in the team’s third preseason game as he returns from a hamstring injury. Johnson took it a step further.
Johnson told Buffalobills.com’s John Murphy Monday after practice that he will play Saturday against the Redskins in Buffalo’s third, and most important, preseason game as far as the starters are concerned.
“I’ll be out there,” said Johnson coming off a practice in which it appeared he got into a groove with QB Kevin Kolb. ”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.”
Johnson said he still feels the hamstring when running routes, but is trying not to worry about it when he’s playing.
“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.”
