Steve Johnson is feeling recurring soreness in his surgically repaired groin. We break down the fantasy implications.

Steve Johnson is feeling recurring soreness in his surgically repaired groin that could last through the season, WGR 550 reports. The Buffalo Bills wide receiver has been riding a stationary bike whenever he hasn't been taking reps in practice to stay loose. Johnson does note believe the issue will hinder him at all going forward.

"No issue really, I know I can play a full game with it, but I just felt it," he said. "I went from not feeling it at all to a little soreness coming around. I think that's just from the reps being heightened this week."

Analysis: While somewhat troubling, this latest news shouldn't affect Johnson's fantasy value much. He hasn't been limited in practice at all, he is simply taking precautionary measures so that he doesn't re-injure himself. Keep an eye on Johnson's status, because if the Bills ever do reduce his reps it could be good cause for alarm. Until then, it's probably safe to assume status quo.
