Lane Johnson officially returns from suspension

Not a moment too soon, apparently.

The Philadelphia Eagles activated right tackle Lane Johnson from the reserve/suspended list on Monday, in anticipation of his return to action from an offseason suspension.

Johnson  was  sidelined four  games without  pay by  the NFL  in late July for violating  the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances by taking a medication he says he failed to check out properly.

Johnson started all 16 games as a rookie last season after being drafted No. 4 overall by the Eagles out of Oklahoma.

To make room on the roster, the Birds released offensive lineman Kevin Graf.

Johnson's return comes on the heels of Nick Foles and the offense struggling for the first time all season in Sunday's 26-21 defeat in San Francisco. Despite 21 points officially on the ledger, the offense contributed to none of that total and only posted 213 yards.
