Lane Johnson like many Americans is ready to get back to a sense of normalcy in our country and sports will play a huge role in our comeback.
The NFL is set to proceed as scheduled with most teams reporting to training camp on July 28. For the Eagles and their star right tackle, the return to the NovaCare complex is a “risk that we are all willing to take” as Johnson told Jeff Skversky of 6ABC that he is hopeful for a 2020 regular season.
When asked if he had any concerns about possibly contracting the coronavirus, Johnson had a realistic approach to the task at hand.
“I mean yeah,” Johnson said.”
“Ultimately it’s a risk that we are all willing to take if you go outside of your house or whatever you’re doing like going shopping. I’ve been doing a pretty good job at staying in the house and keeping my social distancing protocols in so yeah, with everybody it’s going to be a risk that we are going to have to take and see what happens.”
The Eagles are scheduled to open the preseason on Aug. 13 in Indianapolis, with the first home preseason game scheduled for Aug. 27 against the Patriots. The NFL is currently weighing playing only two preseason games.
The regular-season home opener is Sept. 20 against the Rams.
