Eagles RT Lane Johnson injures ankle, exits in first quarter

Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro right tackle Lane Johnson limped to the locker room with an ankle injury in the first quarter and was later deemed out for the remainder of Sunday’s game against the host New York Jets.

Johnson was replaced in the lineup by Jack Driscoll. Philadelphia announced he was questionable to return before downgrading him to out in the third quarter.

Jets rookie right guard Joe Tippmann was also downgraded from questionable to out after hurting his thigh during the first quarter.

Johnson was slow to get to his feet following a scrum at the line of scrimmage as Philadelphia moved the ball against Jets.

He was engaged with Jets defensive end John Franklin-Myers as D’Andre Swift was tackled into Johnson’s lower legs.

Johnson, 33, returned in training camp from offseason surgery to repair an adductor muscle tear, the injury he played through last postseason, and hasn’t allowed a sack since 2020.

Sunday marked his 132nd career regular-season start. He last played a full regular season in 2015, when he started all 16 games.

He signed a one-year extension worth a reported $33.45 million in the offseason.
