Eagles HC Doug Pederson acknowledged that they have a “Plan B” in place should OT Lane Johnson be suspended for 10 games.

“It would be smart on my part to have a Plan B if that’s the case,” Pederson said, via Pro Football Talk. “I’ll visit with [offensive line coach Jeff] Stoutland this week, and we’ll evaluate where we need to go from here. If that’s the case, if it’s upheld, then we’ve gotta be prepared to make some moves. Until it happens, we go full-steam. But the same time, we also know we’ve got to be smart about it to have people ready to go if it is upheld.”

In regards to No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz and his debut last night, Pederson said he was “pleased” with his outing.

“By no means is he perfect or was anybody perfect tonight,” Pederson said, via CSN Philadelphia. “But pleased for his first outing and we’ve just got to continue to work with him on a daily basis and get him where he needs to be.”
