Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Johnson injured his back in the Bills' Week 5 game against the Cleveland Browns, and has missed practice this week because of a death in the family. He didn't rejoin the team until Friday night.
He was keeping up with the game plan on his iPad, and it does seem likely that he'll play. The Bills have been adamant that they won't know whether or not he's ready until they get a chance to evaluate him, but Johnson is a veteran receiver who knows the playbook and is too good to leave on the sidelines.
That is to say, he's too good to leave on the sidelines if he wants to play. If his personal issues have him in the wrong state of mind, he absolutely shouldn't play.
Fantasy Impact: Johnson is a valuable receiver, and he seems good to go from a readiness and back injury standpoint. He seems like a smart bet to play, though how things will look without E.J. Manuel at the quarterback position are pretty much anybody's guess. Johnson is a must-start unless news comes out that he's not playing.
