Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson will reportedly undergo surgery later this week to fix a torn right adductor he played through during the postseason.

Johnson suffered the injury in Week 16, but chose to delay the surgery until the offseason so he could participate in the Eagles' playoff run.

Core muscle surgery typically carries a reliable recovery timeline of three months, meaning Johnson will be ready well ahead of the start of training camp, according to the Pro Football Docs.

He finished the three-game playoff run with a Pro Football Focus grade of 79.7 overall, with an 82.8 pass blocking grade. Johnson allowed two pressures and was called for two penalties over the three games against the Giants, 49ers and Chiefs. 

The 10-year veteran logged a pass blocking grade of 82.8 in the Super Bowl and had an overall grade of 73.9. During the regular season, he allowed 9 pressures, 0 sacks and had 6 penalties in 972 snaps.

The lifelong Eagle signed a 4-year, $72 million contract extension in 2019. He will earn a base salary of $14.1 million in 2023, according to Spotrac.
