The Eagles narrowly escaped with a victory on Thursday night, but they might have lost two of their biggest offensive stars. While they await word on DeSean Jackson‘s ankle, they’ll also hope for good news on Lane Johnson‘s MRI for a suspected MCL sprain (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport).
Johnson returned on Thursday night after missing last week’s game against the Ravens with an ankle injury. Now, it sounds like the right tackle will miss more time with his knee injury. Ordinarily, they’d turn to Jack Driscoll, but his status is also in doubt thanks to an ankle injury that kept him off the field against the Giants. Matt Pryor, who typically plays on the interior, may be the next man up at RT.
Johnson is in the midst of the four-year, $72MM extension he signed back in November of 2019. The eighth-year pro is coming off of his third consecutive Pro Bowl nod, a rare feat for often underappreciated right tackles.
