Lane Johnson Activated; Graf Released

With his four-game suspension served, Eagles tackle Lane Johnson returned to work at the NovaCare Complex Monday. As a result, the Eagles activated Johnson from the reserve/suspended list and released undrafted rookie Kevin Graf to make room for Johnson on the 53-man roster.

While Johnson was out, of course, the Eagles' offensive line has seen its fair share of changes, with injuries suffered by Allen Barbre, Evan Mathis and Jason Kelce causing a domino effect on the line. If Johnson is in game shape and ready to play, he is eligible to return to his right tackle spot on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.

"We haven't seen him for a month," head coach Chip Kelly said about Johnson this afternoon. "He told me he was at API in Dallas working out and there were some other players there. He looked good. It's just the unknown. Where's he at? How does he process things? How quickly does he get back into the swing of things? Where is he from a health standpoint?"
