Eagles LT Jason Peters Has Torn ACL & MCL, Out For Season


Ian Rapoport is now reporting that an MRI revealed that Eagles LT Jason Peters suffered tears to his ACL and his MCL.

This, of course, means that Peters’ 2017 season is over. You can expect the Eagles to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.

Eagles LT Jason Peters is believed to have torn his MCL during Monday night’s win over the Redskins, according to Ian Rapoport. However, the good news for Peters is that he suffered no damage to his ACL and no fractures.

Peters had to be carted off the field during Monday night’s win over the Redskins with a right knee injury.

A Redskins’ defender fell into the side of Peters’ knee and you could see it bend inward. Trainers placed an air cast on his knee before taking him off on a cart.

Peters, 35, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas back in 2004. He spent five years in Buffalo before joining the Eagles in 2009.

Peters is in the first year of his three-year, $32.5 million contract that includes $15.5 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $7.75 million over the final two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Peters appeared in seven games for the Eagles.
