PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles have excused Keelan Johnson from training camp while the safety deals with his arrest last weekend in Arizona for allegedly pushing a police officer in a confrontation outside a bar.
The Eagles announced Friday that the team will not comment further.
Johnson, who still counts on the roster, met with coach Chip Kelly on Thursday in Philadelphia.
The safety was arrested July 19 in Tempe where he played 49 games for Arizona State on charges of aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. A probable cause statement says Johnson ''violently pushed'' an officer in the chest, causing him to strike his head against a tree. Police say Johnson appeared drunk and refused officers' orders.
