Bills WR Johnson says he's full speed

The SportsXchange

Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson said he's about "90 percent" health wise, but said he doesn't feel any issues with his surgically-repair groin and is full goal for training camp.

"I never really say a hundred (percent) because nobody is perfect here. But I feel good about it," Johnson said.

Johnson has a new contract and is expecting big strides for the Bills this season. A lot of that hinges on quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who spent the offseason working on his mechanics and was chomping at the bit to get back to work.

"I love training camp. I love getting away," he said. "Being able to kind of put normal life aside for a little bit and getting here being able to focus one hundred percent on football. I think this team is ready. I think we are excited to get going, to improve and to progress as the season nears. There is a lot of excitement here."

Fitzpatrick is continuing the work he did with coach David Lee over the offseason to improve his footwork.

"A lot of drill work. A lot of things that are really tailored to me for things that I need to improve at and get better at," said Fitzpatrick. "That will be big."
