Lane Johnson practicing with Eagles Tuesday

Offensive tackle Lane Johnson expects to practice Tuesday, which is pretty good news for the Eagles' beat-up line.

Johnson was suspended for the first four games after testing positive for PEDs. The way the second-year man described it, during a stint away from the club he failed to ask the Eagles' medical staff if he could take a doctor's prescription. The prescription contained a banned stimulant.

Allen Barbre (foot surgery), Andrew Gardner and Todd Herremans all have taken turns trying to give the Eagles what they had when Johnson was at right tackle. All of them failed.

Johnson and the Eagles are favored by 7 points over the Rams this Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.

After getting crushed by the Vikings in the regular season opener the Rams beat the Bucs, 19-17, and were beaten on a field goal after blowing a massive lead to the Cowboys.

Speaking of the Cowboys they share the NFC East lead with the Eagles, both teams owning 3-1 records. The Eagles have a division win. The Giants are 2-2, Washington 1-3.

The Eagles have allowed 104 points counting their 26-21 loss Sunday to the 49ers at Levi's Stadium. That's more points than any winning team has surrendered. More than the win-less Raiders have given up.
