Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson looks ready to return in the divisional round against the New York Giants on Saturday. He had no injury designation on Thursday's injury report.

The four-time Pro Bowler missed the final two games of the season with a torn groin. The injury will eventually need surgery, but Johnson told "The Pat McAfee Show" last week that he opted to postpone the procedure in hopes of playing in the playoffs.

Johnson's return is a big boost for the league's third-ranked scoring offense, as the Oklahoma alum has yet to allow a sack or quarterback hit this season.

Cornerback Avonte Maddox will miss his third straight game due to a toe injury. Maddox is the only Eagles player with an injury designation.
