The Eagles could be without Pro Bowl right tackle Lane Johnson for Thursday night's game against the New York Giants.

The team listed Johnson as questionable on an updated injury report earlier Thursday with an ankle injury.

If he's unable to play, Halapoulivaati Vaitai would start in his place.

Johnson, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, has been inconsistent this season. He's coming off a tough outing in last Sunday's 23-21 loss to Minnesota.

The Giants' pass rush has not been very productive this season, however. They have only six sacks, which leaves them tied with Oakland for the fewest in the NFL.
