The Eagles Offensive Line suffered yet another setback during the loss to Washington when Lane Johnson left the game early. He told reporters that he believed his MCL may have been resprained and was to undergo an MRI today.
The results from the MRI are positive for Johnson..luckily. He has as predicted sprained his MCL yet again and also sprained his ankle, but according to NFL Insider Jeff McLane is expected to play against the Saints this weekend.
Lane Johnson has a MCL sprain and ankle sprain after MRI, per source. #Eagles RT is expected to play Sunday, however.

With Gardner already out and Peters sustaining an injury on Sunday, The Eagles will be counting their lucky stars that Johnson SHOULD be able to play on Sunday. The Offensive line has struggled hugely this season and with depth running thin…they need every key piece they have available if they are to turn things around promptly.
