The safety said he hopes for a resolution in the case soon. It could affect his chances of making the roster, especially after he missed much of the first week of practice.
"I'm on the bottom of the list now," said Johnson, 24. "I need to come back and not force anything, let the game come to me. Stand out more than these young guys."
Johnson was on the Eagles' practice squad in 2013 before earning a late-season promotion.
The Eagles re-signed Nate Allen, signed safeties Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Maragos, and drafted Ed Reynolds, adding to a roster that already included Earl Wolff. That makes the depth chart crowded, but Johnson still has a chance, which was not guaranteed after his arrest.
"I was a little nervous," Johnson said. "This is a game where they get rid of you."
Backups on the line
Allen Barbre was expected to be the Eagles' top reserve at four spots on the offensive line. After Lane Johnson was suspended four games for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, Barbre stepped into the lineup. So the Eagles now have an unheralded group trying to provide insurance for the starting linemen.
Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said 28-year-old Andrew Gardner, who has spent time on four NFL teams, has "done a good job." He also praised second-year tackle Matt Tobin, who was on the active roster all of last season. Julian Vandervelde has an edge at backup center, although Vandervelde's back injury gave David Molk some playing time with the second-team offense.
