Stevie Johnson was held out of practice for the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday due to a thigh injury, according to the team's official Twitter feed. Johnson reportedly played through the injury suffered last week against the Houston Texans.
There is no word yet on Johnson's official status for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. He may have been held out Wednesday as a simple precaution. Johnson caught just three passes for 29 yards off seven targets last week.
Fantasy Impact: The Bills' injury report on Thursday and Friday should give fantasy owners a better idea of Johnson's status against the Patriots. Considering he was able to stay on the field against the Texans, it seems likely that he will play in Week 10.
Johnson has been a good bench wide receiver in standard fantasy formats this year, though he has yet to have a game with over 100 yards receiving. His four touchdown receptions in eight games mean that he can be solid starter any given week. Against a bad Pats' secondary, he could certainly put up solid numbers.
