The Philadelphia Eagles may be struggling with their 2-4 start to the 2021 NFL season, but help is on the way.

After missing three weeks due to a personal matter, long-time offensive lineman Lane Johnson announced his return to the team on Monday.

Lane Johnson Update

The three-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle announced his return via social media, posting a heartfelt message to Eagles nation.

"I would like to thank everyone for their understanding and support over the last two weeks. I appreciate the positive notes and messages as I've worked hard to restore my personal life. Depression and anxiety are things I've dealt with for a long time and have kept hidden from my friends and family. If you're reading this and struggling, please know that you are not alone. "I am excited to re-join my teammates and coaches. I'm grateful for the entire Eagles community and look forward to continuing to play in front of the best fans in the world!"

Philadelphia has struggled in his absence, going a disappointing 1-2 in the stretch while allowing at least 2 sacks in every contest. More than half of quarterback Jalen Hurts' 12 sacks came in Weeks 4-6, the totality of Johnson's absence.

Philadelphia will be excited to see their nine-year veteran tackle return and prepare for a Week 7 clash with the Las Vegas Raiders. Currently, Philadelphia is 3-point road underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook.
