Lane Johnson released a heartfelt and emotional statement on Monday morning, addressing his three-week absence from the Eagles lineup.

Johnson admitted that he suffers from anxiety and depression, something that he hid from family, friends, and those close to him, before finally deciding to address the issues head-on.

The Eagles star right tackle has battled numerous injuries over the past two seasons, as well as attrition to a roster that has now seen names like Malcolm Jenkins, Jason Peters, Carson Wentz, and Zach Ertz move on among others.
