Stevie Johnson

Up in Buffalo, the big question yesterday was around Stevie Johnson's inability to go in the Thursday practice due to a fall the Bills receiver had in practice on Wednesday. ?Johnson's momentum on running a fade route carried him off the field and onto a rubber track that rings the team's grass practice field. ?The change in surface caused the fall and while he tried to play after the incident, Johnson experienced some soreness from the fall yesterday that kept him out.

?He got tight yesterday,? Bills Coach Chan Gailey explained to reporters yesterday. ?He could?ve gone out there today, but we kept him out. We think he?ll be back out [on Friday] and be back Saturday and be ready to go Sunday.?

Here's five players to keep an eye on come the Jets Week One matchup against the Bills this weekend.

WR Stevie Johnson - Stevie has put up some of the best stats of anyone in the league against Darrelle Revis in recent years ... but he's not exactly blowing the doors of the Jets cornerback either. ?In his last game Johnson did get a touchdown, but averaged under six yards per target during the course of the game. ?There's been a lot of talk about Revis and Johnson in the last week, we'll expect Revis to want to blanket Johnson as much as possible and Rex to want to scheme the game with that in mind now that the coach has more help from the safety spot than he did a year ago.
