Newark Star-Ledger - [Full Article]

Eagles OT Lane Johnson has been suspended the first four games of the upcoming season after testing positive for PEDs.

There has been no confirmation of the report yet from the team.

If true, the loss of Johnson is a massive blow to an Eagles' offensive line that is loaded with starters but thin on backups.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Eagles line bounced back after an ugly 2012 season and helped pave the way for LeSean McCoy to lead the league in rushing. Fourth-overall-pick in 2013 Johnson was a big part of that. If true, Johnson would return Week 5. While it certainly doesn't help, McCoy shouldn't lose his top-three value heading into drafts.
