Stevie Johnson returns to Buffalo Bills minicamp

Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson is back from groin surgery. Sort of.

The team's top wideout participated in about 10 snaps total during Buffalo's 11-on-11 and 7-on-7 sessions Tuesday at the team's mandatory camp. He says he's "90 percent." He is taking is comeback slowly, but clearly this is a good sign he'll be ready for training camp.

"Definitely, today was a big step," Johnson said. "Still a lot of work to do. Mentally I feel [OK], everything else I think I am pretty good. My groin felt good. I still have to get over the mental aspect of it," he said. "That is why I wanted to come out for this minicamp. . . . I do not want to go into training camp thinking how I am thinking now out there. I think this is a big step."

The Bills went out of their way to call Johnson's surgery very minor when he went under the knife in May. The fact he's back on the field in less than two months is a great sign. Now the Bills just need to figure out who their No. 2 receiver will be.
