by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles activated Johnson from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday morning.

The star right tackle has been cleared to join his teammates in time for the start of practice. Even with Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks (Achilles) out for the season, Philadelphia has the makings of a top-five O-line, with Johnson joined by Andre Dillard (LT), Isaac Seumalo (LG), Jason Kelce (C) and Jason Peters (RG).

The Eagles placed Johnson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

In a statement released on his personal Twitter account, Johnson confirmed that he tested positive COVID-19, but the 30-year-old said he feels well at this time and plans on returning to the team soon. Johnson has earned Pro Bowl nod in three consecutive seasons and is slated to start at right tackle for the Eagles again in 2020.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's wild-card game against the Seahawks, Derrick Gunn of NBCS Philly reports.

Johnson's replacement at right tackle will presumably be Halapoulivaati Vaitai. The veteran is expected to be ready for Round 2 of the playoffs should the Eagles ultimately advance.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's playoff game against the Seahawks.

Johnson was a non-participant in Friday's practice, and it appears as though his availability could come down to a true game-time decision. In the event that Johnson is unable to suit up for Sunday's wild-card bout, Halapoulivaati Vaitai will be called upon to start at right tackle while Matt Pryor will slot in at right guard.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Progressing from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said that Johnson (ankle) will be a limited participant for Wednesday's walkthrough but hasn't been cleared to play, Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Johnson is still recovering from an ankle issue that has forced him to miss the last three games and is close to a return to the field. Johnson will need to be be cleared by team doctors, however, the timetable for that occurring is still up in the air. If Johnson can play this week, Halapoulivaati Vaitai will move inside to right guard but if Johnson is out, Matt Pryor will play right guard with Vaitai at right tackle.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) is listed as questionable for the Eagles' regular-season finale versus the Giants.

Johnson did not participate at Friday's practice, but that is not entirely unusual for a veteran nursing an injury at this point of the season. Given the Eagles' playoff implications on the line in the contest, expect him to give it a go if at all possible. Final word on his status is expected to come closer to kickoff.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Door open to play Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) is considered day-to-day and could play Sunday against the Cowboys, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Johnson's absence could last just one game. The veteran offensive tackle is still expected to miss Wednesday's practice, but he should be back on the field by Friday. The Eagles need to win Sunday to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Ruled out for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Johnson is considered week-to-week due to a high-ankle sprain, so his lack of availability for Week 15 doesn't come as much of a surprise. As long as the star right tackle remains sidelined, Halapoulivaati Vaitai will likely draw the start in his stead.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Garners week-to-week tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson suffered a high-ankle sprain during Monday's 23-17 win over the Giants, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

According to Geoff Mosher of 97.5 The Fanatic Philadelphia, Johnson is considered week-to-week, and coach Doug Pederson hasn't officially ruled out the two-time Pro Bowler for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Still, he's operating on a slightly shortened week, so it appears likely that Halapoulivaati Vaitai will start at right tackle in Johnson's stead.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Done for night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (ankle) won't return to Monday's game against the Giants.

Johnson had his leg rolled up on during the second quarter of the contest, and was carted to the locker room. Halapoulivaati Vaitai entered the lineup at right tackle and should continue to see time with Johnson out. Expect the team to have an update on the veteran's status ahead of their next game against Washington.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (personal) doesn't have an injury designation for Monday's game against the Giants.

Eagles' Lane Johnson: Inks massive extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson signed a four-year, $72 million contract extension with the Eagles on Friday that includes $54.6 million guaranteed, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The deal makes Johnson the highest-paid offensive lineman in NFL history, both in terms of guaranteed money and average annual value. The 29-year-old missed last week's game due to a concussion, but he's cleared the league's concussion protocol and is ready to play Week 13.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
