Eagles’ Lane Johnson, Dallas Goedert to play vs. Raiders

Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson and tight end Dallas Goedert will return to play in Sunday’s road game versus the Las Vegas Raiders.

“He had a good week of practice and we’ll be expecting him to play and start at right tackle,” coach Nick Sirianni said Friday of Johnson, who has been sidelined while addressing his mental health.

Johnson, 31, last took the field in the Eagles’ 41-21 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 27.

A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Johnson has started all 102 games in which he has played since joining the Eagles in 2013.

Also on Friday, Sirianni said he looks “forward to Dallas playing a big role this weekend.”

Goedert was activated from the reserve/COVID list on Thursday morning.

“Conditioning-wise, whatever it is, I can be out there the whole game,” Goedert said Friday. “Running out there and practicing today, I felt really good.”

Goedert has 15 catches for 216 yards and two touchdowns in five games this season, raising his four-year career totals with Philadelphia to 152 receptions for 1,681 yards and 14 scores in 47 games.

Philadelphia drafted Goedert in the second round (49th overall) in 2018 out of South Dakota State.

Goedert is expected to receive the majority of the team’s snaps among tight ends after the Eagles traded veteran Zach Ertz to the Arizona Cardinals last Friday.

Eagles OT Lane Johnson set to return, addressed mental health during absence

Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson is back with the team after missing three games to address his mental health.

Johnson thanked “everyone for their understanding and support” in a social media post.

“I appreciate the positive notes and messages as I’ve worked hard to restore my personal life. Depression and anxiety are things I’ve dealt with for a long time and have kept hidden from my friends and family,” Johnson said. “If you’re reading this and struggling, please know that you are not alone. I am excited to re-join my teammates and coaches. I’m grateful for the entire Eagles community and look forward to continuing to play in front of the best fans in the world!”

Johnson, 31, last took the field for the Eagles in Week 3. He was inactive Week 4 without being on the injury report in advance of Philadelphia playing the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Eagles’ offensive line has been inconsistent without Johnson and while facing other injuries.

Eagles’ OT Lane Johnson returns, not expected to play Sunday

Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson returned to the team but is not expected to play in Sunday’s road game against the Carolina Panthers.

Johnson, 31, hasn’t practiced this week and missed the Eagles’ 42-30 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday due to an undisclosed personal matter.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection returned to the team facility on Thursday and “met with some Eagles,” NBC Sports Philadelphia reported.

NBC Sports Philadelphia also reported Eagles security chief Dom DiSandro went to Oklahoma on Wednesday and returned Johnson to Philadelphia.

Johnson has started all 102 games in which he has played since joining the Eagles in 2013.

Eagles RT Lane Johnson inactive vs. Chiefs

Philadelphia Eagles star right tackle Lane Johnson has been listed as inactive for Sunday’s game against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs.

Multiple media outlets reported Johnson’s absence is tied to an undisclosed “personal matter.”

Johnson, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, participated in practice this week and did not have an injury designation on the final report.

Johnson, 31, has started all 102 games in which he has played since joining the Eagles in 2013.

Philadelphia’s offensive line has been in a state of flux this season. Tackle Jordan Mailata also has been ruled out for Sunday’s game, while guards Isaac Seumalo and Brandon Brooks are both on injured reserve.

The Eagles (1-2) also listed quarterback Gardner Minshew II, cornerback Mac McCain and defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu as inactive for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs (1-2).

Eagles Pro Bowl RT Lane Johnson says he’s a ‘full go’

Philadelphia Eagles three-time Pro Bowl right tackle Lane Johnson said Thursday he’s a “full go” for offseason workouts after missing nine games last season.

Johnson underwent ankle surgery in December after saying in November that his ankle had “collapsed.” He also missed time in 2020 with a knee injury.

“Full go in practice. I got cleared a couple weeks ago,” Johnson told reporters. “Now that I have two legs, I’ll be a different animal this year.”

The Eagles were injury-ravaged on their offensive line last season, a big reason for the team’s 4-11-1 record. The Eagles expect to have right guard Brandon Brooks (Achilles) and left tackle Andre Dillard (torn biceps) back as well.

“Last year was an embarrassment for everyone involved and that’s been sitting and marinating with us,” Johnson, 31, said.

Johnson, a 2017 first-team All-Pro, played in just 19 games the past two seasons. He has started all 99 games in which he has played since being selected by Philadelphia with the fourth overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Eagles activate TE Ertz from IR, put OL Johnson on it

The Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday activated tight end Zach Ertz from injured reserve and put offensive lineman Lane Johnson on it.

The team also activated wideout J.J. Arcega-Whiteside from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Ertz has missed the past five games with an ankle injury sustained against Baltimore on Oct. 18. He returned to practice last week.

Ertz has 24 catches for 178 yards and a touchdown this season after being the team’s leading receiver in each of the past four seasons.

Johnson has battled an ankle injury all season and missed Monday night’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Johnson has played seven games – starting each of them — this season but has played 100 percent of the offensive snaps just twice. Johnson said last week his injured ankle “collapsed.”

Arcega-Whiteside has been on the COVID list the past two weeks and was a healthy scratch the game before that. He hasn’t played since Nov. 1 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Eagles RT Johnson (ankle) says he is out for season

Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson told reporters on Friday that his season is over.

Johnson said he needs ankle surgery, with the Delaware News Journal reporting that the procedure will require four to five months of recovery time.

“The inside of my ankle has collapsed,” Johnson said, per The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Matt Pryor is expected to replace Johnson, 30, when the Eagles (3-6-1) host the Seattle Seahawks (7-3) on Monday (8:15 p.m. ET).

Johnson, a three-time Pro Bowl selection and 2017 first-team All-Pro, has appeared in seven games this season. He has started all 99 games in which he has played since being selected by Philadelphia with the fourth overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft.

RT Johnson a late addition to Eagles’ injury report

The Philadelphia Eagles added standout right tackle Lane Johnson to the injury list as questionable for Sunday night’s home game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Johnson told FOX Sports that his injured knee swelled up Sunday morning and he won’t be able to play.

Johnson also has been dealing with an ankle injury.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection had been projected to start after he was a full practice participant on Friday.

The Eagles activated nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters (toe) from injured reserve on Friday after a four-game absence, which could give them some flexibility on the line if Johnson is out.

Tackle Jack Driscoll (ankle), cornerbacks Craig James (hamstring) and Cre’Von LeBlanc (quad), wideout Alshon Jeffery (calf) and running back Miles Sanders have all been ruled out for the Week 8 showdown vs. Dallas.

Eagles WR Jackson, RT Johnson to have MRIs

The Philadelphia Eagles won the game but may have lost receiver DeSean Jackson and right tackle Lane Johnson to serious injuries in Thursday night’s 22-21 comeback against the New York Giants.

Making his first appearance since Week 3, Jackson caught three passes for 34 yards and rushed once for 12 yards before being tackled awkwardly on a punt return with 2:09 left in the game.

The Eagles fear the three-time Pro Bowl selection has a high-ankle sprain. Jackson posted a photo to his Instagram stories of himself wearing a walking boot on his right leg with the words, “Pray for me y’all!!”

Jackson, 33, by far Philadelphia’s most experienced wideout with more than 10,000 career yards, will reportedly have an MRI on Friday. He missed the previous three games with a hamstring injury.

Johnson, 30, is also having an MRI Friday to determine the extent of his injured knee, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The initial diagnosis was a sprained MCL, per the report.

Johnson, a three-time Pro Bowl pick and 2017 first-team All-Pro, has been dealing with ankle issues for most of the season before suffering this latest setback.

The Eagles (2-4-1) host the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday night (Nov. 1) and have their bye in Week 9, giving both players more time to potentially recover and return to the lineup.

Eagles WR Jackson, OT Johnson set to play vs. Giants

The Philadelphia Eagles expect to see a few familiar faces return to the lineup for Thursday’s home game against the New York Giants.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring), offensive tackle Lane Johnson (ankle) and cornerback Avonte Maddox are in line to play.

Jackson and Maddox have each missed the last three games for Philadelphia (1-4-1), while Johnson sat out Sunday’s 30-28 setback to Baltimore.

“DeSean is closer, had a really good week of practice,” Pederson said. “I anticipate him. I anticipate Lane as well. Both had a really good week.”

While Pederson feels optimistic about the availability of those three players, running back Miles Sanders (knee), tight end Zach Ertz (ankle) and defensive tackle Malik Jackson (quad) have been ruled out against the Giants (1-5).
