Johnson, while speaking with The Buffalo News, said he suffered the injury in March. He was filming a workout session for the Bills’ website.
"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.”
The injury problems continued for Johnson during the team’s voluntary workouts in April. He twisted his ankle after stepping on a cone.
“The back wasn’t cleared up yet. I was just dealing with it,” Johnson said. “Then I came back to see if I could get out there and wiggle with my back and ended up stepping on a cone.”
Despite the injuries, Johnson is aiming to help the Bills win this coming season.

“I try not to miss a game,” Johnson said. “You never know how long you’ll be here. But I love being out there, trying to make a difference.”
