Stevie Johnson has missed the first two preseason games , and quarterback E.J.Manuel with a pulled hamstring. Johnson will now miss Manuel in Preseason due to Manuel’s knee being sprained. Johnson is still not 100% but has said that he will in the game against the Redskins.
“I’ll be out there,” Johnson said, via Chris Brown of the Bills website. “I’ll be out there we’ll see how I feel game speed when everything changes a little bit. The twitches are a little bit faster. I’ll be out there to see how it is and then we’ll be rolling after that.”
Having Johnson back in the line up will definitely add some more offensive power to the line-up but the question at hand is if Kolb can actually show us something we don’t already know about him and make this quarterback competition an actual competition. As far as I am concern, Manuel, hurt or not, still has it week 1 if he is ready to go.
Again, Johnson is not 100% going into this game but if things stay on track for him, he will be on an all systems go for the start of week 1.
