Why Stevie waited on surgery

Posted by Chris Brown on June 1, 2012 – 11:15 am

Stevie Johnson had been dealing with his groin injury since the start of training camp last summer. He fought through the season, but didn’t have surgery until about a month ago. He explained why.

Appearing on the Howard Simon show on Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550, Johnson talked about why it took until April to get surgery.

“It happened in training camp before the season started (last year). So I continued to play through it and we wanted to see if it would heal on its own with getting regular treatment with it,” said Johnson. “Once I came back from our offseason break the pain was still there so we went ahead with the surgery. We tried everything but surgery, but it ended up going that way. I’m feeling much better now than I felt since the start of last season.”

Johnson said he’ll be held out of OTAs for the next two weeks and he and the athletic trainers will “go from there.” But he insists he’s on track to be 100 percent by training camp.
