Report: Eagles Tackle Lane Johnson facing PED Suspension

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles could be without one of their best offensive lineman and their top pick from 2013 to start the 2014 NFL season. right tackle Lane Johnson has been suspended for the first four games of the 2014 season after violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to Philly.com.

Johnson, the fourth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, started all 16 regular season games for Philadelphia in 2013. The Eagles actually had the same five starters on the offensive line for all 16 games last year.

If Johnson misses the first four games, the Eagles will likely turn to backup Allen Barbre, who signed an extension earlier this offseason.

The four game suspension means Johnson will miss games against the Jacksonville Jaguars,  Indianapolis Colts, Washington Redskins and at the San Francisco 49ers.
