The Super Bowl favorite Eagles have taken a devastating blow along their vaunted offensive line. 4 time pro bowl left tackle Lane Johnson has suffered an abdominal injury that threatens to end his season prematurely. Johnson has been diagnosed with an abdominal tear that will force him to miss the remainder of the regular season and may force him to miss time in the postseason according to sources.
This news is concerning as the Eagles also lost starting slot corner Avonte Maddox for the season as well. With injuries piling up the Eagles must do everything in their power to clinch the 1 seed as soon as possible. It also opens the door for the Cowboys to steal the 1 seed and only bye in the NFC if the injuries prevent Philly from winning their final two games.
