Eagles left tackle Jason Peters might not be talking about the injury that cost him last season, but he’s at least going to be compensated for it.
According to the Associated Press, Peters will receive nearly $2 million to settle a lawsuit against the company that makes the Roll-A-Bout knee walker. The lawsuit said Peters was using the walker three weeks after his initial Achilles surgery when the handlebar broke, causing him to reinjure the area and have a second operation.
Peters’ lawyer said the device was listed for patients up to 500 pounds, meaning it should have held the 340-pound offensive lineman.
Because it didn’t, the company’s wallet is a little lighter.
