Eagles’ Slay in protocol, Johnson to get second opinion on ankle

Philadelphia cornerback Darius Slay is in concussion protocol and right tackle Lane Johnson is seeking a second opinion on his surgically repaired ankle, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Monday.

Both players left Sunday’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers – Johnson had to be carted off the field. Slay walked off on his own power late in the fourth quarter.

Johnson, 30, underwent surgery on the ankle in August and missed some action last week in a win over the San Francisco 49ers with a cyst in the ankle that needed to be drained after the game.

Johnson left Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh after 39 offensive snaps and did not return.

“In the case of Lane Johnson, I am waiting,” Pederson said Monday. “Medically, we’re waiting on the second opinion. There’s some reports still coming in on Lane so I don’t have any update yet on him.”

Rookie Jake Driscoll replaced Johnson on Sunday and would be in line to start if Johnson is out. Driscoll also started Week 1 in place of the Pro Bowl right tackle.

Pederson said linebacker Duke Riley, who left Sunday’s game against the Steelers, is fine.

Pederson is also “hopeful” that wide receivers DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Alshon Jeffery (foot) are able to practice this week. Jeffery has yet to play this season while Jackson has missed the past two games.
