Washington’s pass rush could get a little boost when the Redskins visit The Linc in Week 3. 

That’s because the Eagles have reportedly lost Lane Johnson for the first four games of the season. The starting right tackle is facing a suspension after testing positive for PEDs, according to a report by Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News.

If Johnson is banned as reported -- the league has not confirmed the suspension -- the fourth overall pick in 2013 will sit out games against the Jaguars, Colts, Redskins and 49ers. He’ll be eligible to return Week 5 against the Rams.

Without Johnson, Chip Kelly and the reigning NFC East champion Eagles will likely turn to backups Allen Barbre, Dennis Kelly or Matt Tobin.
