Eagles LT Jason Peters (knee) is participating in OTAs.
Peters tore his ACL and MCL last October. It is a shockingly quick return, especially for a 36-year-old. Peters will likely be limited during the offseason program, but he appears on track to be 100 percent well before Week 1. May 22 - 12:11 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Jason Peters (ACL) is his "starting left tackle."

Peters has already said he will play in 2018, and it sounds like his coach will welcome him back with open arms. "He’s a Pro Bowl left tackle," Pederson said. "Guys like that, in my opinion, in my humble opinion, they can go out when they want to go out." Peters is questionable for training camp after tearing his ACL and MCL in October.
Feb 8 - 11:34 AM

Eagles LT Jason Peters (knee, injured reserve) plans to play in 2018.

"They hadn’t asked me, but I’m going to be back," the 36-year-old said. "If they don’t want me, I’m still [going] somewhere." Peters has been sidelined since October because of a torn ACL and MCL, but he is already back running and looks on track for the start of 2018. He was also playing well before the injury, and Halapoulivaati Vaitai has mostly struggled in his place. Cap concerns could cause Philly to move on, especially if they do not think he can return to an effective level coming off a serious injury, but the Eagles will likely do their best to keep Peters around for another season.
Jan 30 - 9:42 AM

Eagles LT Jason Peters (injured reserve) underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL on Friday.

Going under the knife just four days after going down is an indication Peters had a clean tear, and few, if any, complicating factors. It bodes well for his chances of a quick, setback-free recovery. Peters turns 36 in January. It's unclear if he plans to attempt a comeback in 2018.

Eagles placed LT Jason Peters (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Peters was already out for the year, but this clears a roster spot for OT Taylor Hart. Entering his age-36 season, Peters isn't a lock to be back at his $11.6 million cap number. The Eagles can save $8 million from making Peters a post-June cut.

Eagles LT Jason Peters tore his ACL and MCL Monday night against Washington.

There was some hope he was just dealing with an MCL injury, but an MRI on Tuesday revealed the extent of the damage. It is a massive blow to the Eagles' offensive line which may require them to move RT Lane Johnson to the left side. Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who filled in for Peters Monday night, is the other option. 36 in January, it is fair to wonder if Peters has played his final snap.

Eagles LT Jason Peters is believed to have suffered an MCL tear in his right knee Monday night against Washington.

In some good news, Adam Schefter reports Peters has avoided an ACL tear, but this is still likely a season-ending injury. Philly did not move Lane Johnson to the left side on Monday night, instead replacing Peters with Halapoulivaati Vaitai, but they could make the switch in practice this week.

Eagles LT Jason Peters was carted off Week 7 against the Redskins with a right knee injury.

His knee got hit from the outside and bent inward in a gruesome way. He writhed on the field in pain before trainers had to fit him for an air cast and eventually cart him off the field. It's almost surely a season-ending injury for the 35-year-old. Halapoulivaati Vaitai has replaced Peters at left tackle.

Eagles LT Jason Peters (groin) is "fine" and will practice Wednesday.

Peters played just 32-of-69 snaps in the Week 1 win over Washington after suffering a first-half groin injury. He remained on the sideline, suggesting it wasn't serious. Peters will be back out there this week against the Chiefs.

Eagles LT Jason Peters exited Week 1 against the Redskins with a groin injury.

Peters left in the second quarter and came back out after halftime but quickly left again. He remains on the sideline in a helmet, suggesting it's not too serious. Halapoulivaati Vaitai is in the game on Carson Wentz's blind side.

Eagles signed LT Jason Peters to a one-year extension through 2019.

Ask and you shall receive. Peters said Tuesday he wanted security and to retire with the Eagles. He's now under contract for $32.5 million over the next three years and gets $15.5 million guaranteed after having no guaranteed money left on his prior deal. Still one of the premier left tackles in the sport, Peters is signed through his age-37 season. Once thought to be the left tackle of the future, RT Lane Johnson will stay on the right side.
Wed, Jun 14, 2017 09:53:00 AM

Eagles LT Jason Peters said he is looking for a reworked contract which does not force him to go "year to year."

The 35-year-old tackle added he wants to retire with the Eagles. With no guaranteed money over the final two years of his deal, there was speculation the Eagles would move on from Peters this offseason. He clearly wants to avoid the same drama moving forward, although he will likely have to take a pay cut from the nearly $21 million in salary and bonuses he is scheduled to make the next two seasons to gain guaranteed cash.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles will retain LT Jason Peters.

The Eagles have some cap concerns and needs at high-priced positions, so there had been some speculation they would move on from the veteran tackle or at the very least ask him to take a pay cut. Neither option appears like it will happen, so Peters will make $10.7 million in salary and bonuses to protect Carson Wentz's blindside in 2017.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Eagles want LT Jason Peters to take a pay cut.

The Eagles have touched base with Peters, but it's unclear where he's leaning on the matter. Peters carries a cap number of $11.7 million, and the Eagles want that number to come down as Peters turned 35 in January. Lane Johnson is the left tackle of the future in Philly and signed a mega-extension last offseason, but he was slapped with a 10-game PEDs ban and is on thin ice with the league. Peters has a ton of leverage, while the Eagles have minimal cap room.

Eagles EVP Howie Roseman said the team "certainly" wants LT Jason Peters to return next season.

"He has really ingrained himself as a leader of this football team," Roseman said. "Anyone who watched us play saw the impact he has on the game. We certainly want to have him back." While Peters, who will turn 35 later this month, is still a top-flight left tackle, money will be the primary sticking point in his return. Peters is owed a $9.95-million salary and will cost $11.2 million against the cap next year. While his play this season justifies that salary, the Eagles are already paying RT Lane Johnson like a left tackle, and they could use the cap space. Still, it sounds like Peters is in Philly's plans moving forward.
