Eagles left tackle Jason Peters reportedly has torn his reconnected Achilles tendon after falling out of his “Roll-A-Bout,” a scooter-looking contraption that may or may not be intended to accommodate a 340-pound human. (Acutally, the website shows a weight limit of 500 pounds for the SW-500.)
Howard Eskin of NBC 10, who also serves as the sideline reporter for the Eagles’ radio broadcasts, isn’t buying it. Appearing on Tuesday’s PFT Live, Eskin said he’s heard that Peters didn’t suffer the second tear by falling out of the Roll-A-Bout, and that Peters simply may have been doing too much walk-a-bout and too little Roll-A-Bout.
If/when Peters makes good on a vow to sue Roll-A-Bout, the lawyers for the company may want to find out how Eskin knows what he knows. And whether it’s from Eskin or someone else, the reps of Roll-A-Bout will get to the bottom of how Peters injured the bottom of his leg, again.
Eskin touched on a lot of other topics, too. But that’s the only one I recall with any significant clarity. You’ll have to watch the video to get to the rest.
