Jason Peters, Jalen Reagor returning to practice for Eagles

The Eagles open this week in first place in the NFC East and their bid to stay there will be getting some help from players returning from injured reserve.

Monday morning brought an announcement that the team has opened 21-day practice windows for four players who have been on the list for at least three games. Offensive lineman Jason Peters, wide receiver Jalen Reagor, safety Rudy Ford, and linebacker T.J. Edwards make up the quartet.

Peters has missed three games with a toe injury and head coach Doug Pederson said last Friday that the team hasn’t decided where he’ll play once he’s back. Peters re-signed with the team to play right guard after Brandon Brooks tore his Achilles, but moved to his old left tackle spot when Andre Dillard went down for the year during the summer. Jordan Mailata has played in Peters’ place.

Reagor had thumb surgery after getting hurt in Week 2. The first-round pick had five catches for 96 yards in his first two NFL games.

Edwards and Ford have both missed the last three games. All four players will be eligible to play against the Cowboys in Week 8 or they could wait to return after the bye when the Eagles meet the Giants in Week 10.

  1. At this point, this patchwork quilt of an O-Line has been doing well making holes for Sanders and Scott, and keeping Wentz upright, so no rush with Peters.

    As to Reagor, it’s obviously good news, and especially with D-Jax likely done for the season ( possibly with the eagles ), but that doesn’t mean that when going through his reads, Wentz should forget Fulgham, Ward and Hightower, who have performed admirably in the absence of D-Jax, Jeffrey and Reagor.

  2. Peters needs to ride pine. Mailata is gaining valuable experience, the job will eventually be his, and at this point, he’s protecting the QBs backside and firing off in the run game better than Peters was when he went down.

  3. Mai Lara has been playing way better than peters was, we got to let him keep rolling…maybe try him back at guard because that still looks weak ion the line.

    Put Peters back in at right guard and if he doesn’t like that, show him the door. He’s old, he’s washed, and he took too much money.

  5. Peters will start at guard when healthy, for as long as he is healthy. He will do well there. His age and lateral quickness loss will not be a liability there.

    Maliata is the left tackle here for the next 10yrs.

  6. I think most Eagles fans are pleased with the consistent play of Mailata. His athleticism actually reminds me of Peters. That said, IMO he should keep the job Until Dillard is healthy enough for there to be competition there. As for Peters, I was looking forward to seeing him play RG this season and it appears that it will happen. Even as a backup Jason Peters is a valuable asset because of the tutelage and mentorship he brings to a currently mostly young OL group.
