Bills WR Stevie Johnson Leaves Practice with Apparent Hamstring Injury
Although not much info is known at this time, it seems a though Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson has suffered some sort of injury and has left practice at the Bills training camp today.
Bills sideline reporter and WGR 550’s Joe Buscaglia sent out a tweet first reporting the news

Shortly after that, WGRZ’s Jonah Javad posted a short video on twitter showing Johnson in obvious pain and it looks like holding his left hamstring.

He finished the 2012 season with 79 catches for 1,046 yards and six touchdowns, his third straight season with over 1000 receiving yards. He was the first Buffalo Bills WR to do so.
As I said, there isn’t a ton of info out yet, but I expect the team and coach Doug Marrone to make some sort of statement when practice ends. Keep checking back to NYSK for the latest news, follow us on twitter at @tadjohnson_SK or @NY_sportskings.
UPDATE: Head coach Doug Marrone was brief when asked about Johnson’s injury, only saying “we’ll see what the doctors say” at his post-practice interviews.
UPDATE #2- Ian Rappaport is reporting further on the injury
