Philadelphia Eagles star RT Lane Johnson says that he expects to play on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, after missing last week’s game with a groin injury.

Johnson said to the Philadelphia Inquirer, “Just kind of popped some scar tissue from last year,” Johnson said. “So it flamed up. But I’ll be ready to rock.”

Johnson knows that he’s needed in this week’s big matchup with the 49ers. Jack Driscoll replaced him in Sunday’s win over the Bills.

The 49ers have some good pass rushers on the edge of their defense and getting Johnson back in the lineup is huge for Eagles.

Johnson was named first team All-Pro in 2022 and is the best right tackle in football.
