Jason Peters day-to-day with hamstring strain

Eagles tackle Jason Peters missed all of last season with an injury to his right Achilles and now he’s dealing with another issue in the same leg.

Reuben Frank of CSN Philly reports that Peters left practice early on Wednesday with an injury that coach Chip Kelly said was not serious. The Eagles later announced that he suffered a mild right hamstring strain and that his status will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis.

The Eagles expect Peters’ return to action to solve some of the problems that bedeviled their offensive line during the 2012 season. Barring a turn for the worse, this injury shouldn’t get in the way of that.

That said, hamstring injuries that begin as a mild annoyance can develop into something more if not treated correctly. Throw in the fact that the injury occurred in the same leg that Peters injured last year, which raises the question of whether there’s a relationship, and there’s absolutely no reason for the Eagles to exercise anything but patience with Peters’ recovery.

    I’d rather hear of missed tackles, dropped TD passes, blown assignments, anything other than the injury bug ruining this season for my Philadelphia Eagles.

    If I’m the Eagles I make sure he doesn’t try to use something that prevents him from re-straining his right hamstring while recovering from his strained right hamstring…
