Eagles News: Encouragung update on RT Lane Johnson’s ankle injury

All-Pro right tackle Lane Johnson went down with an ankle injury on the Eagles’ first drive of Sunday’s loss against the Jets.

Johnson was later ruled out for the remainder of the game, and the offense suffered mightily.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter appeared on The Pat McAfee Show Monday morning and reported that Johnson’s injury doesn’t appear to be serious.

With starting guard Cam Jurgens already on IR, the right side of the Eagles’ offensive line consisted of Jack Driscoll at RT and Sua Opeta at RG. In Johnson’s place, Driscoll allowed eight total pressures (6 hurries, one hit, one sack) in 43 pass-blocking on Sunday.

Johnson powered through the 2022 postseason with a torn adductor before eventually getting offseason surgery, so it wouldn’t be shocking if he plays through injury. If Johnson misses any time, the Eagles could turn to second-round rookie Tyler Steen, although most of his collegiate experience came at left tackle.
