To the surprise of head coach Chip Kelly, the trainers and some of his teammates alike, Jason Peters suited up and participated both in individual and some team drills Thursday.

He will be listed as a limited participant.

Kelly told reporters prior to Thursday’s session that Peters would be a no-go as he was “still going through rehab for his back.”

Yet there Peters was inside the training bubble, helmet on, taped up and lining up with the first team at left tackle. Read more »

For the second straight day, Sam Bradford (concussion) and Ryan Mathews (concussion) were held out of practice at the NovaCare Complex.

According to Chip Kelly, Bradford and Mathews have yet to clear concussion protocol, which means they haven’t been able to practice or lift weights this week. While Bradford continues to take in practice from the sidelines, we have not seen Mathews to this point.

Kelly also said that Jason Peters (back) would be unavailable at practice Thursday, but the left tackle took part in individual drills, and Lane Johnson was lining up at right tackle.

Report: MRI Confirms Separated Shoulder For Sam Bradford

Sam Bradford

In addition to suffering a concussion, an MRI confirmed that Sam Bradford separated his left shoulder Sunday against the Dolphins, according to Ed Werder.

Although a previous report indicated Bradford may miss the Eagles’ next two games, Werder also noted that the quarterback wants to play this week and will “see how he feels late in [the] week.”

However, Bradford did sit out of practice today, in addition to Ryan Mathews (concussion) and Jason Peters (back). Peters did practice yesterday, leading a reporter to ask Chip Kelly today if Peters suffered a setback.

“I guess so,” Kelly said. “I just know he can’t go today.”

Kelly said Bradford and Mathews, both of whom suffered their concussions in the Eagles’ 20-19 loss to the Dolphins, had yet to be cleared through the league’s concussion protocol, which meant they were not allowed to practice with the team.

It was getting close to kickoff, and Lane Johnson still didn’t know what position he was playing.

Jason Peters warmed up pre-game against the Dolphins and apparently indicated that he was ready to play, but got shot down by Chip Kelly.

“I think he tried to go and I think he was going to go but I don’t think Chip allowed him to go is what it was,” said Johnson. “When I got there I thought he was warming up so I was expecting to go right. In the locker room, I was kind of, ‘What the f— am I playing?’ and ended up knowing I was going left. It was kind of messed up.”

When the Dolphins faced the Bills in Week 9, Miami’s defense may have taken an unexpected look into its future without defensive end Cameron Wake.

Head coach Dan Campbell didn’t like what he saw.

Miami’s defense allowed Buffalo to pile up an eye-popping 266 yards on the ground, despite LeSean McCoy exiting the game with a shoulder injury in the second half.

Jason Peters has been dealing with a pinched nerve, turns out. The pain is in his quad, but the root of the problem apparently is in his back.

“I pinched that nerve in my back. Anytime you pinch a nerve, you’re going to go down pretty tough,” he said.

That helps explains the scene that unfolded in Carolina, the tackle writhing in pain before being carted off the field. The injury was described as “back spasms” at the time. Read more »
