Coach Doug Marrone said he wouldn't hesitate to hold Stevie Johnson (personal) out of Week 16 if he thought it was the right move.

Johnson's mother passed away unexpectedly on Saturday. After posting one catch for four yards against the Jags Sunday, he flew to California to mourn with his family. Johnson could end up missing the entire week of practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Patriots. "God or my faith is No. 1, and my family is No. 2," Marrone said. "Football is No. 3. If you say that and you believe in that, you've got to practice what you preach. A lot of times when you make decisions, that's how I think about things."
