Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson played in Sunday’s game against the Jaguars even though his mother passed away the day before.
Johnsson told BuffaloBills.com that he had a good talk with head coach Doug Marrone that helped him.
“I spent a lot of time with coach Marrone and we just sat and talked,” Johnson said.
“We talked about everything. It wasn’t about football. I felt good about it. He talked to me like I was his son or something. He made me feel comfortable with my decision whichever way it went, whether it was to fly right back or stay. I felt like we’ve got business here and I’m here already so let’s take care of business and we’ll deal with everything else after the game.”
Our prayers certainly go out to Johnson and his family.
