Lane Johnson expected to make return this Sunday against Raiders
After missing the last three games due to personal issues, the Eagles look to be getting their right tackle back. Earlier today, Nick Sirianni stated that he expects Lane Johnson to play against the Las Vegas Raiders this Sunday. Johnson has been at practice but has been slowly working his way back into form.
Johnson was limited to start the week but was a full participant during yesterday’s practice. Las Vegas has a dominant pass rush this season led by edge rusher Maxx Crosby. Philadelphia will need all the help they can get, so it’s great to see Lane Johnson back on the field. With his return, Jordan Mailata will slide back to left tackle while Andre Dillard heads to the bench.
Several Eagles should be making their return this Sunday. Both K’Von Wallace and Tyree Jackson were activated off injured reserve earlier this week. Just yesterday, Dallas Goedert was cleared from the Reserve/COVID-19 list and should be available as well. Yesterday’s injury report was slim, so the Eagles should be healthy for their week seven matchup.
