Johnson received the ban for a second violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. The Redskins were given an Exempt/Commissioner Permission in order to put off releasing a player from the 53-man roster, but once a move is made, he'll be available to play again Thursday for the first time since Week 5. Due to a multitude of injuries at right tackle, head coach Doug Pederson expects Johnson to slot in as the starter against the Giants.
Johnson's 10-game suspension has been upheld, Albert Breer of CSNNE.com reports.
Johnson was handed the 10-game suspension after his second violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. He won't be able to return to team activities until Week 16 against the Giants. Johnson's absence will leave a huge hole in the Eagles' offensive line that Allen Barbre will be expected to fill.
