Bills WR Steve Johnson still bothered by surgically repaired groin

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson said Wednesday that after feeling good for most of training camp, he is starting to be nagged again by the left groin muscle that he had surgically repaired in May.
"The entire training camp, I was good," Johnson said. "[Wednesday]. I don't know if it happened Tuesday or what not, but I guess it just got a little sore. It's not like a pop or injury -- just sore, that's all it is.
The good news is that Johnson practiced through the pain Tuesday and Wednesday and feels like it won't be a problem for the regular season.
"I know I can play a full game with it, but I just felt it," Johnson said. "I went from not feeling it at all to a little soreness coming around. I think that's just from the reps being heightened this week."

Fantasy Analysis:

Like other players who are feeling it this time of year, this is worth keeping an eye on, but I wouldn't let this affect where you draft Johnson. He'll manage the pain well, and you figure that if Johnson was really hurt, the team could tell and wouldn't let him keep participating in practice. Because wide receiver is so deep this year, Johnson is one of the best WR3 options out there.
