Stevie Johnson expected to play in Bills vs. Redskins

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Out of the lineup for more than two weeks, Johnson will test his injured hamstring out when the Bills travel to the nation's capital this weekend.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson is planning on suiting up for the team's preseason tilt at the Washington Redskins on Saturday.

Johnson, who injured his hamstring on August 2, returned to the practice field in a limited capacity last week - he was out of action for roughly two weeks - and has worked with the first-team offense in 11-on-11 work for the last few. His next test will be to see how the injury holds up in slightly more intense game situations.

For the record: Johnson told reporters on Monday that the hamstring issue is still bothering him.

"Yeah I still do. I feel it on almost every play," Johnson said. "I can still go, so it’s really no issue until it’s an issue."

With Johnson and T.J. Graham out of the lineup last Friday, rookies Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin started on offense. Now that Johnson and Graham are both expected back in the lineup on Saturday, how a quartet of young receivers - Woods, Goodwin, Chris Hogan and Marcus Easley - rotate into the football game could give us a better look at the wide receiver pecking order with cutdown day drawing ever closer.
