Bills WR Johnson Returns to Practice

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson returned to practice on Friday, and is expected to play on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

Coach Chan Gailey said Johnson is officially listed as probable after getting the day off Thursday to rest a sore groin that has been bothering him the past month.

Cornerback Terrence McGee won’t play against Oakland (1-0) because of a hamstring injury sustained in Buffalo’s season-opening win at Kansas City. McGee is expected to be out for at least a couple more weeks.

Linebacker Arthur Moats (knee) is probable, but defensive lineman Torell Troup (back) is doubtful.

Bills WR Johnson Misses Practice

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson missed practice Thursday because of a sore groin that has been bothering him for about a month.

Coach Chan Gailey said Johnson was just given the day off, and fully anticipates Johnson to play Sunday when the Bills (1-0) play host to the Oakland Raiders (1-0).

Johnson appeared to tweak the injury in a position drill on Wednesday during the portion that reporters were able to watch. He took a few repetitions off before returning.

The four-year veteran led the Bills with 82 catches last season, and had four receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown in Buffalo’s season-opening 41-7 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Defensive lineman Torell Troup (back) and linebacker Arthur Moats (knee) were both limited again on Thursday.
