Report: Eagles’ Jay Ajayi has insurance policy to soften blow of torn ACL

8:02 p.m.: Halapoulivaati Vaitai better be ready to go. Because even though Lane Johnson is playing through a high ankle sprain, it’s pretty clear he isn’t 100 percent. He was downgraded to questionable on Thursday morning and then needed to test out his ankle on the field. 

And then there’s this text message he sent to Jay Glazer. 

If Johnson has to leave the game, Big V would take over, but then it’s worth wondering if Jason Peters is going to last. Peters has been dealing with a quad injury, so it seems possible both tackles might not finish this game. 

7:37 p.m.: The Eagles are on the field for warmups. 

And it is still absolutely pouring here in North Jersey. It doesn’t look like this rain is going to let up anytime soon. 

6:53 p.m.: Lane Johnson (ankle) is active after being downgraded to questionable earlier in the day. That’s good news for the Eagles.
