Eagles' All-Pro Tackle Exits in First Half

The Philadelphia Eagles had almost the ideal first half against the Dallas Cowboys. Almost. The Eagles jumped out to a 20-3 lead against their division rival, but right tackle Lane Johnson exited late in the second quarter. He was later declared out with a concussion. Johnson visited the team's medical tent towards the end of the first half and was then escorted to the locker room. He was replaced in the lineup by Jake Driscoll. Driscoll is a three-year veteran who has started 14 total games for the Eagles since being drafted 145th overall in 2020.

Johnson is perhaps the Eagles' most established and trusted veteran on the offensive side of the ball. A three-time Pro Bowler, he has earned a strong 78.3 overall grade from Pro Football Focus through five weeks of the regular season.
Johnson joined the Eagles as their fourth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft following one of the most impressive NFL combine performances of all time. He earned his first and only All-Pro during the Eagles' Super Bowl-winning 2017 season. The Eagles' pass-blocking and run-blocking will suffer in his absence.
