Report: NFL suspends Eagles OL Lane Johnson 4 games for PED use
Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson will miss the first four games of the season after testing positive for performance enhancing drugs, reports Paul Domowitch of Philly.com.
Johnson was selected with the fourth pick of the 2013 draft by Philadelphia and started all 16 games in his rookie season, and is expected to keep his starting job in 2014.
Johnson told PhiladelphiaEagles.com that he spent his offseason adding muscle.
"I feel a lot stronger than I was last year, I weigh more than last year - it's the most I've ever weighed - and I just feel that from a mental aspect I know what to expect. Nothing is going to catch me off guard."
