Stevie Johnson to Have Groin Surgery

BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Eyewitness sports has learned that Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson will be in Philadelphia over the next couple of days to undergo groin surgery.

Johnson's agent, CJ Laboy, tells Eyewitness Sports his client's procedure is "extremely minor surgery that won't keep him out long at all. He will be at [the Bills'] facility for all activities."

Johnson originally used twitter to reveal he was on the way to Philly on Sunday evening. Johnson tweeted: "La Guardia Airport on My Way to Philly for a couple Days for This Groin Surgery. (I Need to be 100 for Y'all this Year)"

It's no secret that the Bills top wideout, and newly re-signed receiver, had been hampered by groin problems throughout the 2011 season.
