Steve Johnson to have groin surgery

Buffalo Bills leading receiver Steve Johnson announced on Twitter that he is in Philadelphia to undergo groin surgery. Johnson's agent told Buffalo television station WKBW that the procedure is "extremely minor."

Johnson was slowed late last season with the nagging injury. He played through it and didn't miss any games. He re-signed a contract extension with the Bills this offseason.

Johnson is an important part of Buffalo's offense. He caught 76 passes for 1,004 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
