Stevie to clear mental hurdle

Posted by Chris Brown on June 19, 2012 – 6:08 pm

Stevie Johnson was back in the practice setting taking part in 11-on-11 and 7-on-7 team work. Only getting 10 snaps however, Johnson still has to get his mind convinced that coming off of groin surgery his body is healthy again.

“They say it looked good,” said Johnson of the review from the athletic trainers. “I felt like I was a bit slow. Then coming in and cutting to the right it felt heavy. It’s just a mental thing because I didn’t feel any sharp pain like I did last year. That’s why I felt like I’m good. So hopefully tomorrow I’ll just be able to go out there and focus on plays and who is lined up across from me and defense and all that other stuff. Today it was more of if I cut right here will it pop or what is going to happen next? I just feel like if I get a few more plays then I’ll be good.”

Johnson said there was a reason he targeted minicamp to return and it was to get any concerns about his groin out of his head before training camp.

“That’s why I wanted to come out for this minicamp so I can get acquainted to running routes and try to get over the mental aspect of being out there and cutting on my left leg and trying to trust it,” he said. “I don’t want to go into training camp thinking like I’m thinking now out there. I think this is a big step.”
