Back in March, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson was filming a workout for the teams website, when he fractured the L-5 vertebra in his back.
Johnson told the Buffalo News that he thought it was just a back strain.
“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 told the newspaper. “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.”
Reports say that the video was filmed so that the Bills could show their fans that Johnson actually does indeed workout, and workout hard during the off-season.
Johnson says he feels better, and doesn’t expect to miss any time.
