According to multiple sources, Philadelphia Eagles starting right tackle and former Oklahoma star Lane Johnson has tested positive for PEDS and will be suspended the first four games of the NFL season.

The Eagles organization has yet to comment on the situation and the specific performance enhancing drug has not been released.

Johnson, 24, was selected by the Eagles with the fourth-overall selection in the first round in 2013 and started all 16 games for Philly this past season.

Johnson transferred to Oklahoma from Kilgore College after his freshman season, playing for the Sooners from 2009-12. He was a tight end and defensive end in 2010 but switched to offensive tackle in 2011, where he started 12 games. In 2013 he switched from right to left tackle at OU and earned third-team All-America honors from CBSSports.com.
