Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro right tackle is finally having surgery to fix his torn adductor.  Johnson tweeted a picture of himself looking rather out of it with the caption “surgery time.” How’s that for a source!?!

Recovery time for a torn adductor is roughly between 12-16 weeks according to most medical experts.  Barring any setbacks, Johnson will likely be ready by mid-to-late spring workouts.  The 32-year-old injured the core muscle late in the 2022-23 regular season and missed the final two regular season games.  He played in every Eagles’ postseason game.
