Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson already is sidelined.
Johnson sat out the second day of voluntary workouts after straining his back before Tuesday's opening session under new head coach Doug Marrone.
"It's kind of wild," Johnson said. "It came out of a cut during warmups, just a little tweak."
Johnson called the injury "nothing too serious, just day-to-day." He will have treatment Thursday morning and then determine if he'll participate in the final voluntary workout until organized team activities begin May 13."It's very disappointing to the point where I'm out here, watching the guys have fun running around like this," Johnson said. "But not too much because [the injury] is not too serious like my groin was" last season.
Johnson also said he's unconcerned about picking up offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett's system because "this is probably my fifth offense I've had to learn. It's nothing too tough for me. I've done it before. I'm not really worried about that part. We'll get it all down."
He remarked that he's excited about the tempo of practices, calling them "intense" already.
