Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro OT Johnson to Undergo Surgery

Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson gutted out a painful torn adductor to be there for his team this postseason, but with Super Bowl LVII now over and done with, he can finally begin his recovery. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the 2022 All-Pro will undergo surgery to repair the injury later this week.

Johnson initially suffered the adductor tear in a Week 16 40-34 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He missed the final two games of the regular season but returned for the Eagles' Super Bowl run. He distinguished himself admirably, helping the team to amass an impressive 531 rushing yards and limiting opponents to only four sacks of quarterback Jalen Hurts in three postseason contests.

Johnson is a four-time Pro Bowler and one of the few veterans remaining from the Eagles' iconic Super Bowl-winning 2017 squad. Though his sacrifice and suffering didn't propel the Eagles to the result they hoped for in Super Bowl LVII, it no doubt heightened his standing among his coaches and teammates in the locker room. He should be ready for training camp, and he should one day find himself in the Eagles' personal Hall of Fame.
