Eagles Place LT Jason Peters On Injured Reserve


According to Ian Rapoport, the Eagles placed veteran LT Jason Peters on injured reserve after an MRI revealed a tow injury that requires “several weeks” to heal.

Rapoport adds that Peters was out from Wednesday and Thursday’s practice due to illness and felt “discomfort” in his foot during Friday’s practice. 

Peters, 38, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas back in 2004. He spent five years in Buffalo before being traded to the Eagles in 2009.

Peters signed a four-year, $53 million extension in Philadelphia after the trade. Last year, Peters signed another one-year extension worth $6 million for the 2019 season. 

Philadelphia brought Peters back on a one-year, $3 million contract this past June. The Eagles restructured his contract last month to make it worth up to $8 million and includes $4 million guaranteed.

He’s started all three games for the Eagles so far this season. 

In 2019, Peters started 13 games for the Eagles at left tackle.  He was Pro Football Focus‘ No. 6-ranked tackle out of 83 qualifying players.
