Bills WR Steve Johnson says he will play Sunday despite hamstring injury
Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson missed the final quarter of Sunday's win over the Jaguars because of hamstring tightness. But that is all of the game action he expects to miss going forward.
"It is tightness in the hamstring," Johnson said. "I will be cool for Sunday. Just get the treatment and then be back on the field. ... It is nothing serious. That is a good thing. Nothing pulled. Nothing popped. It was just tightness in my hamstring, and I will be good."
At least Johnson was able to get into the end zone to salvage his fantasy line in Week 13. He has put up at least seven fantasy points in each of the past four games. Barring a setback, Johnson is a worthy WR3 or a low-end WR2 heading into Sunday's matchup versus the Rams. However, St. Louis has allowed the ninth-fewest FPs to wide receivers this season.
