Steelers WR Diontae Johnson told reporters he sustained a groin injury in Week 2 last year.
Johnson's sports-hernia operation in February was thought to be a minor cleanup, but the 23-year-old admitted he played through the injury for most of his rookie season. He hasn't received full clearance to return to training just yet but is hopeful he'll receive word "in the next couple days" and be a full-go in June's minicamps. Johnson astonishingly led the Steelers in targets (92), catches (59), and receiving scores (5) while playing through said injury and should only improve in his sophomore follow-up after working out with Ben Roethlisberger this offseason. It's only a matter of time before his eighth-round ADP inclines even further. May 27 2:45 pm (EST)
- Johnson is recovering from sports hernia surgery, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
