PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly opened training camp Saturday dealing with an issue he never faced before — one of his top players being suspended.

Right tackle Lane Johnson, Kelly's first opening-round draft pick and the fourth overall pick of the 2013 draft will miss the first four games of the 2014 season after testing positive for a banned substance.

Johnson started all 16 games as a rookie and the team's wild-card playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints. He won't be eligible until the fifth game when the Eagles host the St. Louis Rams on Oct. 5.

The tackle is allowed to practice every day at training camp and play in the team's four preseason games. Once the regular season begins on Sept. 7, he must be off team premises.
