Eagles left tackle Jason Peters last played in Week Six and his return to the field included a trip to the operating room.

Head coach Doug Pederson said at a Wednesday press conference that the knee injury that’s kept Peters out of action was treated with arthroscopic surgery in the last few weeks. Pederson also said that Peters is ready to take a step back toward returning to the lineup.

Pederson said that Peters should take part in practice on Wednesday and that the team will see where he is at the end of the week. Rookie Andre Dillard has been starting in Peters’s place.

Pederson also said that wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is day-to-day with an ankle injury and that he’s hopeful linebacker Nigel Bradham could return from his ankle injury to face the Patriots after missing the last three games.

  1. Familiar names on the injury report…Peters, Jeffrey, Bradham. It’s time to let Dillard play and stop putting in Peters

  2. As a close friend of the organization it is sad to see that Peters’ diet and lifestyle is translating to time off the field. Good thing Dill is a good plug and play or else they’d have lost to the Bears

  3. As a friend nowhere close to the organization, its completely logical to see a 37 year old dude weighing over 300 pounds falling apart from playing a lifetime of high-level football. I’m sure he has the same diet and lifestyle as most on the league.

  4. as a friend of a guy who used to play 3rd string RB for the vikings fr 2000-2003, I agree w guru, let Dillard play LT. He is the future, might as well be the present too. The 1st team reps will help him at practice and in turn, games!
    Jason has GOT to walk, er limp, off into the sunset this offseason!

  5. As a friend of a friend who saw a guy shoveling snow at the Linc three years ago on TV word has it that Peters is a fitness nut. His lifestyle is the reason he is still playing in his late thirties. Remember he came up as a tight end.
    As long as the price is right I want him to play, even if it’s part time.
    In five postseason games in his career he has never allowed a sack or has been charged with a penalty!
