BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson is scheduled to have what his agent calls ``very minor'' surgery to repair a groin injury that nagged the player for most of last season.

C.J. Laboy confirmed in an email that the surgery is scheduled to take place in Philadelphia on Tuesday. Johnson announced the news himself on his Twitter account, noting he wants to be 100 percent healthy heading into the season.

Laboy says the procedure was planned, and Johnson is expected to be ready for the start of a series of voluntary minicamps, which open May 29.

Johnson has been the Bills leading receiver the past two seasons. In March, he signed a five-year, $36.25 million contract extension.
