It looks like the Philadelphia Eagels will be without offensive tackle Lane Johnson for the first four games of this season.

According to a report from The Philadelphia Daily News, Johnson violated the performance-enhancing drugs policy and will serve the suspension as a result. A year ago, Johnson started all 16 regular season games at right tackle.

The line is a solid group up front but thin behind the starters. This could force the Eagles to look into any available veterans that could be plugged in for the four games Johnson is expected to miss now.

If the Eagles don't turn to the free agent mark, Allen Barbre would be the next in line to play the right tackle position.
