Stevie Johnson was limited to riding a stationary bike at Bills practice Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Stevie Johnson was limited to riding a stationary bike during Buffalo Bills' practice Thursday, Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 Buffalo reports. Johnson has been hampered by a groin injury throughout the offseason, and was limited in practice Wednesday. There is no word yet on his status for Sunday's game against the New York Jets, though a report Wednesday indicated that the receiver is unlikely to sit.

Analysis: The Bills may simply be taking a cautious approach, but it's somewhat worrying that Johnson was held out completely. Reporters at Wednesday's media portion of practice said that he looked fine, however. More than likely Johnson will be on the field this weekend, but to be safe be sure to follow up with Friday's team injury report.
