Lane Johnson could be facing a suspension, but it hasn’t been handed down yet.

Paul Domowitch reported that the right tackle tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and will miss the first four games.

When asked to confirm the report, an NFL spokesperson replied: “We have no information on him.”

Does that mean no suspension has been handed down from the league?


Johnson is not necessarily out of the woods. Players typically learn of a positive test before the league office. It’s possible, then, that his camp is aware of the failed drug test and it simply hasn’t hit the league offices yet.
