Eagles tackle Lane Johnson hit with 10-game suspension

Eagles tackle Lane Johnson hit with 10-game suspension

Johnson had an appeals hearing with the league in which he said he spent almost eight hours outlining his reasons for overturning his latest violation of league policy.

So, it should come as no surprise that, despite his appeals, Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson has had his 10-game suspension upheld.

As for Johnson, he is now forced to stay away from the NovaCare Complex for the next 10 week.

The only reason that Eagles' lineman Lane Johnson has been playing this year is because he was appealing his 10-game suspension. Those are against the Giants and the Cowboys, so they could be huge for the playoff picture, but it's still hard to be without him until that late in the year.

This isn't the first time Johnson has gone through this process.

Johnson was having a strong fourth-season. Mainly, it was just interpretation of policy.

Instead, the Eagles are now hoping Peters, now 34, can stay healthy over the course of the season. Bob spoke with Carson Wentz and Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol who used to trade sports headlines in the same area code. Things could go sideways for the offense if the offensive line started to crumble.

Fletcher prepared to risk injury as Scotland face key Slovakia tie
It's not just that he's telling us everything is great when it's not. "Look, we are going in to win the game as we do every game". Strachan remains confident that Scotland can challenge for second place in Group F - and be in the mix for the play-offs.

Johnson has played fantastic to open the season on a very good Eagles offensive line.

It isn't great news, but it's the outcome many of us expected.

If Halapoulivaati Vaitai does not work out at the right tackle position, then the next backup plan would be to move Allen Barbre from the starting left guard position. This will be the Philadelphia Eagles first game against a division opponent in 2016 and although they have already notched three wins, need to prepare vigilantly for a contest that has proved frustrating in recent memory, as the Redskins swept Philadelphia in their 2015 series.

Fifth round pick Halapoulivaati Vaitai ( pronounced hal-lah-poo-lee-VAH-tee VIE-tie, or also known simply as Big V) could make his first National Football League start. Well that extension might look totally different now, because he had language in it that would void the guaranteed money if he was suspended.

"It was eight hours of bickering back and forth and discussing league policy", Johnson said via csnphilly.com. The rookie surprised many by going from third on the depth chart to being the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Johnson's suspension leaves the Eagles in the lurch.
