NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Philadelphia Eagles' offense has taken another blow.

Offensive tackle Lane Johnson is facing a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, a source informed of the situation told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Johnson is appealing the pending suspension.

Fantasy Impact: 

This would be a huge blow for the Eagles offense. Johnson is the team's best offensive lineman and current right tackle. With left tackle Jason Peters also banged up, the Eagles run game featuring, Ryan Mathews, and QB Sam Bradford would take hits to their fantasy value. Last year when the Eagles offensive line went through struggles, TE Brent Celek spent a lot of time as a blocker, which also kept Zach Ertz off the field. It could be the reason we've heard word the team will use more multiple-TE sets.
