EAGLES JOHNSON’S ANKLE DRAINED, READY FOR STEELERS RUSH!

By Harry Allison

Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson is feeling much better about his surgically repaired left ankle.

“I ended up getting that drained,” Johnson said Friday. “There was about 6 cc of fluid in my ankle just kind of sitting there. It became inflamed and it was hard to push off of it. But I practiced full today and that was good. I’m starting to walk around with no pain. It’s getting better.”

Since Doug Pederson became head coach, the Eagles are 37-18-1 when Johnson plays and 6-12 when he doesn’t.

Johnson competes today against Pittsburgh Steelers pass rusher T.J. Watt, who has 3 1/2 sacks and is quick coming off the edge of a formidable defensive line that includes the highly regarded Bud Dupree on the other edge and Cam Hayward and Stephon Tuitt inside.
