Stevie Johnson injury: Bills WR not ruled out yet vs. Jets

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Johnson suffered a groin injury in Week 10, and while his status does not look good this week, Doug Marrone isn't ready to say the receiver will be out.

Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson has missed two days of practice this week with a groin injury, but head coach Doug Marrone is not ready to rule him out. Marrone did add that he does not "feel good about him being able to play." Johnson is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

Johnson suffered the injury last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had three catches for 48 yards in that game.

Keepers Week 11

Matt Ufford offers you fantasy advice on Riley Cooper, Colin Kaepernick, Bills running backs and more.

Johnson leads the team with 41 catches for 471 yards, and the Bills are 29th in passing yardage this season. Rookie E.J. Manuel returned from a four-game absence last Sunday against Pittsburgh, but he might not have his No. 1 receiver this week against the Jets. If Johnson is forced to sit out, rookie Robert Woods may see an increase in targets. Woods has 26 catches for 349 yards this season.

T.J. Graham and Marquise Goodwin could also see increased playing time.
