Report: Eagles lineman Lane Johnson suspended 10 games for PED use
Tuesday August 9th, 2016

Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson is currently appealing a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy, according to multiple reports.

Darren DeGaetano of Philadelphia radio station WIP was first to report the news

Johnson told Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer that he took an approved amino acid and is waiting for the rest results on his B sample. 

Johnson was previously suspended four games for a PED violation in 2014. 

The Eagles signed Johnson to a five-year, $63 million contract extension in January. The deal includes $35.5 in guaranteed money, but the guarantee would be voided if he is suspended, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports

Over the past three seasons, Johnson has played more offensive snaps than any Eagles player.
