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.
