Stevie Johnson finally returned to the practice field Tuesday even though it was somewhat random and last minute, but his presence on the field goes a lot further than him being a spectator on the sidelines.
That according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, who has a very young receiving corps in need of some veteran leadership.
“I think the good thing is Stevie has done a great job being out there and supporting everybody,” said Hackett. “He’s obviously had to have some growing pains in the new system so he’s been able to get a lot of mental reps. I think being out there helping those guys has been critical for all of them. His presence has been out there the whole time it’s just nice to see him in a helmet from our standpoint.”
Hackett also pointed to Brad Smith as a veteran wideout that helps with the younger receivers.
