Jason Peters Exits With Injury

Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters left early in the third quarter with an apparent shoulder injury.

Peters was initially engaged with former Eagle Daniel Te’o-Nesheim on a running play to LeSean McCoy before coming off the block to hit linebacker Lavonte David. He went to the ground after the hit and eventually walked off under his own power. Peters was replaced at tackle by Allen Barbre.

He has since returned.

Chris Polk injured his shoulder in the first half against the Bucs and will not return.

Polk did not register a carry prior to exiting but was active on special teams. The running back was on the injury report this week with an ankle as well.

Patrick Chung, meanwhile, is still dealing with a bad shoulder. He was slow to get up after tackling Tampa running back Doug Martin in the second quarter and seemed to be favoring that left shoulder after that. Chung missed the previous two games.

Defensive coordinator Billy Davis described Chung’s injury as “unique” this week. The team has been otherwise vague about the nature of the injury.

Rookie Earl Wolff is sharing some of the snaps with Chung this week.

    Never thought I would not really care one way or the other when seeing Peters go down.

    But the guy just aint the same. Solid player still. But no longer a stud. Hope Lane can be ready for the switch over by next season.

      Give him a pay cut, put him at G/backup swing T if need be for next year. LJ and D. Kelly can be Tackles. And I wouldn’t mind at least one more stud OL next year either through the draft.

        10m no dead…he’s getting big cut in pay to stay in philly. keep telling myself only 3,4,5, now 6 games on twice cut into achilles. guy is 330, has to take sometime.

        • theycallmerob

          i mean, it’s not like he’s a liability, he’s just not the Greatest LT in the Game anymore. And even a somewhat modest pay cut wouldn’t hurt the Eagles, lord knows the cap room is there. The OL is a big disappointment so far, but again- I didn’t have tremendous expectations for this year besides (1) implement the Chip System, and (2) have a good draft and promising rookie campaigns. Just being pragmatic. Beyond that is a bonus (like Kelly implementing the most explosive run game in the league)

            dude, are you serious about just putting dennis kelly as a starting tackle and benching peters? or putting him as a guard over who exactly? you can’t just assume dennis kelly, a sixth round pick who was ok and also bad at times last year, can just be penciled in as a starter. peter is simply way better.
            you normally make really good comments on here, but that one is just baffling, haha.

      He is coming off 2 Achilles surgeries. Hopefully, he will be better as time goes on.

        Well aware of that. Said in the offseason people were expecting too much from him coming back from that.

        Cant see them paying the guy next year after taking Lane #4 overall.

    • Ron Swanson

      The guy isn’t dominant like 2 years ago but is still a very solid left tackle. How quickly we forget how terrible that spot was last year.
