While the Eagles are starting to get healthy, for the second half of the season, it appears they will have to enter Sunday nights game with the Cowboys without starting right tackle Lane Johnson.

Johnson is dealing with a MCL sprain in his knee, suffered in lasts weeks game game against the Giants and was downgraded to questionable today by the team.

Today on the NFL on FOX NFL pregame show, Jay Glazer reported that his knee swelled up and that he will miss the game.

“The team thought he was going to go," Glazer said. "I just got off the phone with him, his knee swelled up today, he told me he will actually be out later against Dallas.”

With Johnson out, Jordan Mailata is the favorite to play right tackle, with Matt Pryor an option.
