San Francisco 49ers receiver Stevie Johnson dismisses suggestions that he is growing frustrated by his lack of playing time this season.

San Francisco 49ers receiver Stevie Johnson has insisted that he is not growing frustrated by the lack of playing time he has received so far this season.

Johnson was a three-time, 1,000-yard receiver during his spell with the Buffalo Bills, but he is currently behind Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree and Brandon Lloyd in San Francisco.

"No frustration at all. [The] only sense of frustration is being a competitor, you know, wanting to do more. But it ain't like there's a bunch of pansies in front of me," he said, according to CSN Bay Area.

"It's cool to a certain extent. When we get in those situations, in the heat of the moment, of course, I'm a warrior. I'm ready to go out there. We got great guys out there on the field. You can't be frustrated. It's not going to look right."

Johnson has recorded back-to-back games of making five catches and he is expected to continue to play a role in the 49ers offense for the rest of the season.
