Stevie Johnson a spectator at practice

By Jay Skurski

Stevie Johnson is not practicing today, after being listed as a limited participant Wednesday because of a groin injury. Johnson was on stationary bike at the start of practice, then watched as the receivers took part in individual drills.

Bills coach Chan Gailey will provide an injury update following practice. Johnson said earlier this week with Mike Florio on Pro Football Talk that his groin, which was surgically repaired in the offseason, was about "90 percent."

Johnson took a hard fall during practice Wednesday on the track surface that surrounds the team's grass practice field, although it's unknown yet whether his absence today and limited participation yesterday are related to that.

Given Johnson's history -- he played through a tear in the groin all last season -- it's certainly a concern for the team moving forward.
