On a slow sports Monday, there isn’t a lot to talk about well if you are a Philadelphia Eagles fan it is now. According to Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News, league sources have told him that Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson has tested positive for PEDs.

With this news coming down it also means that Johnson will miss the first four games of the 2014 NFL regular season. Johnson was drafted last year with the fourth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. As a rookie, Johnson started immediately from day one. He would play and start in all 16 regular season games as the Eagles’ offensive line was very consistent and kept quarterback Nick Foles upright and helped Lesean McCoy to the rushing title.
Now without Johnson for the first four games of the season, Dennis Kelly or Michael Bamiro will have to step up in his place. The Eagles first four games of the regular season are against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Indianapolis Colts, Washington Redskins, and San Francisco 49ers.
