Report: Bills' Stevie Johnson Will Have 'Very Minor' Groin Surgery

Monday April 30th, 2012

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson will have "very minor" surgery to repair a nagging groin injury, according to the Associated Press.

Agent C.J. Laboy confirmed to the AP that Johnson will go under the knife tomorrow in Philadelphia. He says that the procedure was planned and that Johnson is expected to be ready for the start of voluntary minicamps on May 29. Johnson has been the Bills' leading receiver the past two seasons -- he made 76 catches for 1004 yards and seven touchdowns last year, and 82 receptions for 1073 yards and 10 touchdowns the season before. He signed a five-year, $36.25 million contract extension last month.
