Lane Johnson Appeals to 2nd Circuit

On Monday, Lane Johnson left the game after sustaining brutal blindside hit when his quarterback, Carson Wentz, unprotected on the left, slammed into the offensive lineman’s leg during a sack.  On Tuesday Johnson, in a brief filed at the Second Circuity Court of Appeals by his attorney Stephen Zashin, accused the NFLPA of a blindside shot of their own and Southern District of New York Judge Richard Sullivan of abusing his discretion in dismissing his claims.
