Stevie Johnson fractured his back

According to the Buffalo News, Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson suffered a fracture to the L-5 vertebra in his back whiling filming a workout session for BuffaloBills.com.

“It got to the point where, ‘It’s got to be something more than a strain or something’ because every time I sit down it’s hurting,” Johnson said. “Every time I stand up it’s hurting. I lay down, it’s hurting. I went through rehab and it wasn’t helping.

“So I got the MRI, and it was a slight fracture.”

Johnsons was given a cortisone shot and an epidural to help him recover.

It sounds like Johnson will be just fine with training camp roughly six weeks away.
