On the first day of Eagles training camp, Chip Kelly announced that Allen Barbre will start at offensive tackle while Lane Johnson serves his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Barbre is a seven-year veteran who saw playing time as a backup last season.
Kelly also said that Barbre would be pushing the starters along the offensive line for playing time regardless of Johnson's status.
Johnson, the No. 4 overall pick in last year's NFL draft, will sit out the first four games this season.
