The Bills expect Stevie Johnson to play Sunday despite missing Thursday's practice. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson missed Thursday's practice with a groin injury, but the team doesn't expect him to miss Sunday's game against the New York Jets. After practice, coach Chan Gailey talked to reporters to elaborate on his star receiver's status: "He got tight yesterday. He could've gone out there today, but we kept him out. We think he'll be back out (Friday) and be back Saturday and be ready to go Sunday."

Fantasy Impact: Johnson was bothered by the same groin injury throughout the whole 2011 season, so it's pretty concerning that it's still a problem even after offseason surgery and limited action in preseason. Even if he does play Sunday, he'll be matching up against Darrelle Revis at less than 100%, making him a poor fantasy option this week.
