During an appearance on NFL Network, Lane Johnson said the Philadelphia Eagles will "be contenders again" as long as they avoid a run of serious injuries.
Specifically, Johnson feels Carson Wentz will be motivated to excel after he suffered a concussion in Philadelphia's playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
"I think we all have something to prove every year," Johnson said. "Especially with how last year ended, him coming out early with the hit by [Jadeveon] Clowney, as far as just competitiveness, his drive, this is it for him. As far as having the pieces around him this year and really ready to click, I think he's ready for a prime time season, and when he’s healthy, man, he's so dangerous, and I think we'll see more of that what you just saw across the screen."
