Eagles' Lane Johnson: Set for surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) is scheduled to undergo surgery Monday, John Clark of NBC Philadelphia reports.

Johnson's ankle procedure will be carried out in Green Bay by Dr. Robert Anderson, who regularly treats foot and ankle injuries for NFL players. The All-Pro right tackle is already ruled out for the rest of the 2020 season, and the impact of his loss can't be overstated for Philadelphia's offense. Rookie Jack Driscoll will slot into the starting lineup the rest of the way.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Officially on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles placed Johnson (ankle) on season-ending injured reserve Wednesday.

Johnson said last week that "the inside of my ankle has collapsed." Ankle injuries have plagued his 2020 season, but there hasn't been any indication that he'll require surgery at this time. Moving forward, rookie Jack Driscoll (knee) is expected to start at right tackle.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) won't return during the 2020 season, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Johnson relayed that "the inside of my ankle has collapsed." The All-Pro offensive tackle has been playing through an ankle injury for nearly two months. The Eagles are expected to place him on IR in the near future. Rookie Jack Driscoll (knee) will replace Johnson at right tackle for the remainder of the season.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Exits with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson left Sunday's game against the Browns with a shoulder injury.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Ready for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee/ankle) will play in Sunday's game versus the Giants.

Johnson missed the Week 8 matchup against Dallas, but he's healthy enough following the bye week to play in a crucial divisional clash. His ankle injury is expected to linger all year, but for the time being, he'll start at right tackle.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Officially inactive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee/ankle) is inactive for Sunday's divisional contest against the Cowboys.

Johnson initially appeared on track to face Dallas, but swelling in his knee Sunday morning will require him to miss another game. Philadelphia's already shorthanded offensive line will once again have to make due without the standout right tackle.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Sitting out Sunday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson's knee swelled up on Sunday morning, and he won't be playing Sunday night against the Cowboys, Jay Glazer reported on the Fox pregame show.

This is a significant blow to the Eagles' shorthanded line. He originally had been cleared earlier this week.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Cleared for Sunday's tilt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee/ankle) will play in Sunday's game versus the Cowboys.

Johnson suffered a Grade 1 MCL sprain in the Week 7 win over the Giants, and being no stranger to playing through injuries, he won't miss any time. He'll start at right tackle in a crucial divisional matchup.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Escapes with low-grade sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson sustained a Grade 1 MCL sprain during Thursday's 22-21 win over the Giants, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Eagles are no doubt relieved to see the results of the stalwart right tackle's MRI confirm only a relatively minor sprain, the severity of which may not cause Johnson to miss any time. It's worth noting, however, that Johnson was already dealing with a moderate ankle injury. It's possible that the combination of both issues could threaten his availability against the Cowboys on Nov. 1.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: MCL sprain feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) has been preliminarily diagnosed with an MCL sprain and is slated for an MRI to confirm his injury, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Johnson was forced out of Thursday's 22-21 win over the Giants in the fourth quarter. The veteran right tackle was already playing through a significant ankle injury, and if the diagnosis of an MCL sprain is confirmed he could be forced to miss a few games. In that case, Jack Driscoll (ankle) and Brett Toth would be candidates to slot into the starting lineup.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Leaves Thursday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Giants due to a knee injury, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Johnson was already playing through an ankle injury Thursday, the severity of which caused him to spent time on the sideline on a few occasions, and he now seems to have picked up a new knee issue. The veteran tackle was forced out midway through the fourth quarter, so it seems likely that he won't manage to retake the field versus New York.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) upgraded to full practice participation Wednesday and doesn't carry an injury designation into Thursday's game against the Giants.

Johnson was unable to play through the ankle issue in last week's loss to Baltimore, but he appears to be healthy enough to return to action. Now that he's been fully cleared to play, expect Johnson to assume his usual starting role at right tackle for Thursday's game.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Set to sit Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Ravens, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Coach Doug Pederson said earlier in October that he believed Johnson would be able to play through this ankle injury moving forward, but the veteran offensive tackle suffered a setback during this past Sunday's loss to the Steelers and will now miss Week 6. He'll need a quick recovery to suit up in Week 7 -- a Thursday night matchup against the Giants. For the time being, rookie Jack Driscoll is expected to start at right tackle.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Missing practice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) didn't suit up for Thursday's practice, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Johnson missed his second straight practice of the week, as he is still dealing with the effects of the injury he suffered during last week's loss to the Steelers. It's appearing more likely by the day that Johnson will miss more game action this season, and if he sits out Week 6, look for Jack Driscoll to take over as the team's starting right tackle.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Ankle injury still bothersome
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) was carted to the locker room during Sunday's game against the Steelers, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

The removal of a cyst from around his ankle earlier in the week was suppose to alleviate some of the 30-year-old's ankle issues, but it's still proving bothersome. Jack Driscoll should work at right tackle while Johnson is unavailable.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Will suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) will play in Sunday's game versus the Steelers.

Johnson's expected to be limited during practices this year, but coach Doug Pederson believes he'll be able to play through the injury. Expect the 30-year-old to start at left tackle Sunday.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Ankle injury expected to linger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said Johnson's ankle injury will linger, and "he's going to have to play through it," Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

It appears this is something that may need offseason rehab, so Johnson will have to tough it out for now. If it indeed lingers all season, Johnson likely will be a regular on the injury report, logging limited sessions and probably a handful of DNPs. When he took snaps off in Sunday's win over the 49ers, rookie Jack Driscoll filled in at right tackle.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Return questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against San Francisco, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Johnson went to the locker room early, then got back into the game, only to check himself back out a few plays later. If Johnson can't return to the contest after his most recent setback with the ankle, Jack Driscoll will take over at right tackle.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Able to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (undisclosed) was able to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers after being taken to the locker room earlier, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.

Johnson was taken to the locker room, presumably with an injury, after the opening drive. He reemerged later in the first quarter, giving the injury-depleted Eagles offensive line a much-needed boost.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Taken to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was taken to the locker room with an undisclosed injury after playing the opening drive of Sunday's game against the 49ers, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

Johnson has been battling an ankle injury recently, but it's unclear if this trip to the locker room is related to that injury. Jack Driscoll took over at right tackle for an Eagles team that's now down four starters along the offensive line.
