Lane Johnson to locker room briefly, Eagles extend lead

The Eagles are well on their way to another win, which means they have some room to use some mental energy on hoping that they don’t have to replace another starting tackle.

Right tackle Lane Johnson left the game with an apparent lower back injury in the third quarter and then returned to the locker room with members of the Eagles medical staff. Given the score of the game and a bye next on the schedule, it would come as no surprise if Isaac Seumalo gets the rest of the day even if Johnson is OK.

That score is now 38-9 as the Eagles got a two-yard Corey Clement touchdown run a few minutes after Johnson was injured. Clement’s score came a play after the Eagles went for it on fourth down and capped a 13-play, 77-yard drive that ate up half the third quarter.

So the Eagles continue to dominate the Broncos, although the overall feeling at the end of the day will have something to do with the news on Johnson.

UPDATE 3:18 p.m. ET: Johnson has returned to the Eagles sideline.

UPDATE 3:26 p.m. ET: Johnson has returned to the game as well.

  1. Man I hope Zimmers defense gets a chance to face off against Wentz and this Eagles offense.
    Classic playoff chess match.

  2. Elway should fire VJ today and try to save himself. Elway himself will likely be fired at the end of the season. How do you go into a season wil Siemian and Osweiler as your QBs? On top of making quite possibly the worst coaching hire this century.

    Agreed. Good match up. To bad the other side wouldn’t be a match up at all and the eagles would win pretty easily. Would much rather see that game if one of the other two qbs was playing.

  4. The balance of the Eagles is definitely some of the best I’ve seen in recent memory. They are clearly the favorites for the Superbowl. Nobody in the NFC comes even close. Their offense has an amazing passing game and running game. Their defense is full of ball hawks, run stoppers, and pass rushers.

    Eagles vs. Steelers in the Superbowl is very likely.

    Elway could go 0-16 for ten years straight and Denver would never fire him. He OWNS that city. You can point at the QBs for their poor play, sure, but a key reason is they have no tight ends and their offensive line is still not very good. Their defense is also not good at covering tight ends.
