Report: Eagles LT Peters goes on IR
Philadelphia Eagles left tackle Jason Peters will go on injured reserve because of an injured toe, NFL Network reported Saturday.
Under 2020 season rules, he must miss at least three games, meaning the 38-year-old veteran will be eligible to return on Oct. 22 for an NFC East clash against the New York Giants.
Peters, a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, signed a one-year, $3 million contract in July to play right guard after starter Brandon Brooks suffered an Achilles tendon injury.
When the Eagles lost starting left tackle Andre Dillard to a torn biceps muscle last month, it was reported that Peters was seeking more money to return to his old position protecting quarterback Carson Wentz’s blind side. The team restructured his deal last month.
Peters is in his 16th season in the NFL and has started 198 of his 208 career games with the Buffalo Bills (2004-08) and Eagles, earning first-team All-Pro honors in 2011 and 2013.
The Eagles (0-2-1) are set to play Sunday night in San Francisco against the 49ers (2-1).
