by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters (toe) was moved to injured reserve Saturday,Zach Berman of The Athleticreports.

After Peters broke and dislocated his toe in last week's game, the veteran has officially been moved to IR and will need season-ending surgery. Peters debated retiring this past offseason, so it remains to be seen what the future will hold for his career.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said Friday that Peters (toe) is set to undergo season-ending surgery, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Peters is the fourth starting offensive lineman lost by the Eagles this season, joining the ranks of Brandon Brooks (Achilles), Lane Johnson (ankle) and Andre Dillard (biceps). Much to his credit, the stalwart veteran had attempted to fill in at multiple positions along the O-line in order to minimize Philadelphia's losses, but he'll now be forced to sit out and address his broken, dislocated toe. Nate Herbig will start at right guard the rest of the way, per Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Forced out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers due to a toe injury.

Peters managed to suit up Sunday despite dealing with a broken, dislocated toe, but it's possible that the issue has now contributed to his third-quarter exit. The 38-year-old veteran had been starting at right guard for the Eagles, and his absence may require the team to shuffle the O-line around again.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Will play through toe injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters has a broken, dislocated toe and will require offseason surgery, but he'll play through the injury in Monday's game against the Seahawks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Eagles are moving Peters from tackle to guard to help make up for his lack of mobility. The offensive line continues to be a weak point for the Eagles' offense, and Peters' limitations won't help the cause. This is yet another indication that the 38-year-old's career could be over after this season.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Clear of injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters (undisclosed) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's projected injury report.

Peters exited in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 22-17 loss to Cleveland. Though coach Doug Pederson acknowledged the departure was because of injury, specification on the injury type has yet to be shared. Despite the lack of clarity, Peters' projected return to full practice situates him for his seventh appearance of the season Monday night against the Seahawks.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Remains starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said Peters (undisclosed) remains Philadelphia's starting left tackle, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

The 38-year-old struggled during Sunday's loss to the Browns and exited late due to an unspecified injury, but there was some speculation he had been benched. Assuming the injury is minor, Peters will be back at left tackle for the Eagles versus the Seahawks in Week 12.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Picks up injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters exited Sunday's game against the Browns with an undisclosed injury, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Peters struggled against pass rushers all afternoon, so when he left the game in the fourth quarter, there was speculation that he was simply benched. However, coach Doug Pederson relayed following the game that Peters suffered an injury, and he didn't provide further details. Jordan Mailata took over at left tackle.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Taken off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters (toe) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

Peters' toe injury cost him four games, but it is confirmed he will be playing Sunday against the Cowboys. The veteran tackle should return to his starting role along the offensive line.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Preparing to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters (toe) returned to practice Monday, indicating the start of his 21-day window to be activated from IR.

Peters returned to Philadelphia this season to shore up an injury-riddled offense front, but the veteran went down with an injury of his own and missed four games as a result. It appears the 38-year-old tackle is on track to return soon, and if the practice week goes well, he could be available for Sunday's divisional clash against the Cowboys.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters (toe) landed on injured reserve Saturday.

The veteran made an unexpected return to the Eagles this offseason due to the team's injury crisis on the offensive line, which has claimed Brandon Brooks (Achilles), Andre Dillard (biceps) and Isaac Seumalo (knee) so far. Peters isn't exactly a bastion of health himself at this stage in his career, however, as he battled a knee issue earlier in the season and has since suffered a toe injury that will take several weeks to heal. Jordan Mailata will be the next man up at left tackle.

Eagles' Jason Peters: All clear Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters (knee) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.

Peters was a limited participant during Wednesday's session, but as evidenced by this news, he's ready to rock for Week 2. Now healthy, he'll assume his usual starting role as the team's left tackle.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Lands on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Peters may have picked up this injury in the season opener against Washington, but it doesn't appear to be too serious since he's still practicing in some capacity. The Eagles' offensive line struggled to protect Carson Wentz against Washington's menacing defensive line, so a quick recovery for Peters will be vital with a matchup against the Rams on deck.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Receives pay raise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters agreed to a new deal with the Eagles worth up to $8 million Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Peters had originally refused to move over to left tackle without a pay raise, but even though he already agreed to move, the team compensated him accordingly. He'll now serve as Carson Wentz's blindside protector in 2020, with the deal worth $4 million in guarantees.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Moving to left tackle after all
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters will start the season at left tackle, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

Peters signed a one-year contract to play right guard and initially refused to move over to left tackle without a pay raise, but the veteran lineman has had a change of heart and will take over for the injured Andre Dillard (biceps) at left tackle. It's unclear at this point whether Peters' team-first move will be rewarded with a reworked contract.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Expected to stay at guard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Doug Pederson said Peters will likely stay at right guard this season, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Andre Dillard (biceps) is out for the season, so the Eagles need a new left tackle to step up. Pederson relayed that the team has options at the position, but that came after Peters signaled he would require a pay increase to play left tackle since he's playing for just $3 million in 2020. Pederson's options are Jordan Mailata, Matt Pryor and Jack Driscoll -- none of whom are as dependable as Peters. This may just be a negotiation tactic by Pederson, so we'll need to see how the competition plays out ahead of Week 1's matchup versus Washington.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Seeking pay increase
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters wants a salary increase to play left tackle in the 2020 season, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Peters signed a one-year, $3 million contract in July to play right guard for the Eagles, but now they want him to play left tackle after Andre Dillard suffered a season-ending bicep injury. Protecting Carson Wentz's blindside is probably worth more than $3 million to the Eagles, but head coach Doug Pederson has been playing hardball, saying Jordan Mailata, Matt Pryor and Jack Driscoll are all in the running for the left tackle job. However, Peters is likely the favorite to win the job, and the Eagles can afford to fork up extra cash for peace of mind.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters (lower body) returned to practice Wednesday, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Peters missed Monday's practice with the lower body injury but it was a short-lived stint on the sideline for the veteran offensive lineman. He's taking first-team reps at right guard for the Eagles.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters missed practice Monday due to a lower-body injury, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

It's unclear how Peters sustained the injury, but the good news is that he's considered day-to-day with the issue. Once healthy, the veteran is expected to operate as the team's starting right guard.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Re-signs with Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters agreed Wednesday with the Eagles on a one-year contract, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the contract is worth up to $6 million, including $3 million guaranteed. Peters has Hall of Fame credentials as a left tackle, but the Eagles want 2019 first-round pick Andre Dillard to take over the blindside, while Lane Johnson is locked in at right tackle. As a result, the 38-year-old Peters is expected to be plugged in at right guard, where Brandon Brooks earned Pro Bowl honors with the Eagles each of the past three seasons. Brooks suffered an Achilles tear earlier this summer, ruling him out for the 2020 campaign. Peters made 140 regular-season starts for Philadelphia over the past 11 seasons, exclusively working as a left tackle. He hasn't played guard in the NFL.

Eagles' Jason Peters: Doesn't intend to retire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters said after Sunday's wild-card round loss to the Seahawks that he wants to play another season in the NFL, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Peters turns 38 later this month, but the veteran tackle evidently feels good enough to play another season after the 2019 Eagles failed to overcome a plethora of injuries come playoff time. Whether he moves elsewhere in free agency or stays in Philadelphia remains to be seen.
