NFL: Preaseason-New York Jets at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles will be missing a key piece of their offensive line when they face the Redskins at FedEx Field on Sunday, and for their week 14 matchup. Johnson has been appealing the PED suspension for months, but it will be made official this week.

NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo reports that the Eagles will not be moving LG Allen Barbre to right tackle as some people speculated. They will instead use rookie Halapoulivaati Vaitai at the RT position during Johnson’s suspension.

UPDATE: Halapoulivaati Vaitai will start at RT for the Eagles
